Mexican green rice is a typical dish which originated from Mexico. It is locally called as Arroz Verde Mexicano and prepared using Morelos rice which is typically grown in Mexico of highest quality. The original recipe asks for poblano pepper (Capsicum annuum) which is originally grown in Mexico with very mild flavor. There are many versions of this rice preparation. The recipe is very simple with few ingredients adding mild flavors of roasted rice, capsicum, onion, garlic and herbed coriander. I have tried to add an extra flavor by grilling the veggies and then churning it. Apart from adding flavor and light green colour to the rice variety, capsicum or bell pepper are loaded with vitamins like A, C, K. Bell peppers have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. This is gluten free and vegan free recipe.
Mixture of herbs like pudina and coriander can be added for grinding. The quantity of green chili is variable depending on individual taste.
