Mexican rice

Hello dear readers! Today I’m going to share an old family recipe which I specially searched from my handwritten recipe book to share in the space. It is almost 2 decades old. I  found the picture of the dish in one of my folder. I will replace the picture soon as and when I prepare. This rice is one of my favourite dish .
