Mexican Rice

Wishing everyone a very happy and safe holi ,also a very happy international women's day ,hope you all have a colourful life .To celeberate this holi i made mexican rice and bread halwa , i tried both the dishes for the first time and this rice  recipe i noted down while i was going through the bangalore times newspaper and the bread halwa recipe is taken from Sailu's blog.Both the dishes were quite interesting and easy to cook,i hardly took any time for dishing them out.The lovely aroma while making this rice makes u nostalgic and the flavour is just mind blowing.
