Basmati Rice with Corn and Peas

basmati-rice-with-corn-and-peas-myfavouritepastime-com_6721Rice is one of our favourite carbohydrates, besides pasta and potatoes. I prefer basmati rice because it’s easy to cook and it tastes awesome too. Winter has come to an end (hopefully). I saw a forecast for snow for sometime next week and almost hit the roof. How is the weather wherever you are? Ours is rain, rain, rain and some more rain, but the temperatures are awesome. I wish you are very pleasant week. Times are busy for me, so infrequent posting, every now and again.

  1. Looks like a fun recipe! Curry powder, yum. Where are you getting snow? We are doing well in Minnesota with 60s this week. Though there’s no guarantee we don’t have another good blizzard in us until we’re safely into summer. Weather is a funny thing.

    1. Yep forecast for snow in my little city this Friday. The temperature with fall to 24. Now its 48. Thanks for visiting my blog. Do have a lovely weekend!
