Mixed Vegetables Sesame Rice

Have you ever tried sesame rice with mixed vegetables, if not you guys should make some if you are making sesame rice next time at home. For my second day of blogging marathon, am posting today this colourful and flavourful rice with cabbage,carrot and green peas coz my theme for this week is cooking with different veggies. You can carry very well this rice in your lunch box,even kids love this rice as this rice tastes almost like fried rice also looks as though. With a hard boiled egg or fried papads, this rice tastes extremely delicious and we enjoyed this vegetable sesame rice very much for our lunch yesterday.

In case if you dont like sesame seeds, you can replace it very well with peanuts. Give a try friends, am sure this dish will definitely satisfy your tastebuds and quite a delicious, healthy rice which gets ready truly very quickly. Check out the marathoners running this 24th edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to
