About Paprika Infused Red Rice Pasta

Preparing my Kids school lunch box is a bit interesting stuff for me as she needs a variety of food every day. Kids expect some colors, cheesy and most importantly tasty. Red rice pasta with vegetables is one such dish I prepared recently and she liked it a lot. In fact she was showing the variety of colors to her friends in this dish.
Naturally red color paparika is infused in red rice pasta and cooked along with garlic, capsicum, cauliflower and finally garnished with Dill Leaves and Parmesan cheese gives this yummy and garlicky paprika infused red rice pasta Red rice has better nutritional benefits than white rice.
They have a good source of fiber and helps to meet the iron required for an individual. It helps in weight management which indirectly helps in controlling the sugar levels. I included capsicum and cauliflower for the vegetables part in this recipe.
The pasta is infused with paprika or roasted tomato powder for the taste and rich natural color. If you are using a white pasta instead of red rice include double the quantity of what I mentioned.

I love to cook the most authentic way. Most of my recipes are cooked either in claypot or kalchatti / soapstone. They are extremely beneficial as they retain the nutrients. Before cooking a recipe in these vessels I do in-depth research and make sure it is doable in any modular kitchen.
