Mexican Rice

Had tried this long time back.... but had gone for a holiday to India... So could not post it... Had a wonderful time as usual in India... Took my daughter there for the first time there... She also enjoyed there a lot... was pampered by everyone.... So I m back with my recipie after a long time...This rice is really very simple, easy and fast to prepare.... I liked it as it was something different and fast to prepare... but still I am wondering why the name Mexican rice was given to this recipe... what mexican touch does it have... anyways it tastes good so as Shakespear said what there in the name... :) here goes the recipe....
Serves 6
3 cups cooked long rice (basmati rice)
1 chopped onion
1 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 1/2 cups mixed boiled vegetables 1/2 cup red kidney beans (rajma) (boiled and pressure cook with little salt)
1tbsp oil
salt to taste
To be ground to paste
4 garlic cloves
1/2 inch ginger piece
1. You can take carrot, beans, peas, corn, cauliflower and potatoes as mixed vegetables.
2. Heat the oil and fry the onion for 2 min. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry again.
3. Add chilli powder, red kidney beans, vegetables and fry for further 5 minutes.
4. Add rice and salt and mix well.
5. Serve hot.

I saw this on HBO long back but they ground jalapeno and tomato sauce. I felt it was more of tomato pulav:), and yours seems like veggie pulav. As long as it is tasty, the name does not matter!
So that explains the absence!
