Mexican Cilantro Lime Rice

The first time i ate this Mexican cilantro lime rice as a stuffing in burritos, which was quite new and different for me, i was pleasantly surprised that burritos stuffed with cilantro lime rice, i got hooked with this flavourful cilantro lime rice from that day and i already prepared twice at home,its one of the favourite Mexican food,everyone at home love it very much..We enjoyed last weekend this delicious rice with Refried Beans and a simple cucumber salad..This rice with its fabulous hint of lime and cilantro leaves makes a wonderful and flavourful main course food to be enjoy along with burritos and baked beans...I used basmati rice for making this incredible rice, you can also use long grain rice for making this Mexican rice as they both works out wonder..


1cup Basmati rice (washed)
1+1/2cup Vegetable stock water
4nos Garlic cloves (minced)
1/4cup Fresh lime juice
1tsp Lime zest
1/2cup Cilantro (chopped)
Salt
Olive oil

Heat the olive oil, add the garlic and rice,saute for few minutes, add the vegetable stock water,salt,lime juice, bring everything to boil and cover and cook in simmer for 15-20minutes, when the rice is done, add the lime zest and chopped cilantro leaves, give a quick stir and put off the stove..

Serve warm with refried beans..
