Capsicum & Tandoori Tofu Rice

Tandoori tofu bites are always welcome here, everyone at home love this bites just as appetiziers..This time i tried making a rice by combining tandoori tofu bites and capsicum, both together turned out the rice more flavourful, tasty and quite a filling rice..This rice goes prefectly even for a lunch box menu and this rice doesnt even need any special side dish...Also its an excellent way to feed whoever never like tofus..Yeah along with rice, they dont even notice these bites and will enjoy them, if u dont like capsicum u can very well add ur favourite veggies in this rice..Simple, easy and quick rice gets ready in less time, u can also prepare this rice with leftover cooked rice anytime..Sending this rice to Pj's Tasty Tofu Treats & to Akila's  Dish Name Starts With C..

The instructor asked me not to have rice or recipes having rice content until December. He says it will add extras to my stomach. I am running on the fuel with wheat constituents and low fat companions. I will keep this in records and try it the next day my schedule ends. :)
