Mexican / Spanish Rice

Made Spanish / Mexican Rice. It more or less resembles our tomato rice, except for the following differences.

  1. The rice needs to be roasted in oil till it becomes golden brown.
  2. Olive oil is recommended and garlic needs to be added. I did not have them but used  Italian dressing while cooking rice which contains olive oil and garlic.
  3. In tomato rice, we use fresh chopped tomatoes, but Mexican rice, uses tomato sauce. 
  4. In tomato rice the cooked rice will be mixed with the tomato preparation, but in this all the ingredients are steamed with roasted rice. 
It tastes different and yummy.
