BM #87 Day 15 - 

This blend of rice is a favorite with my family. This is one such dish which can be customized to accommodate my little one's not-so spicy taste buds as well.

I make two versions of guacamole, one a super spicy one and the other bland one. So it works out well. When I pack their lunch boxes, I pack some extra guacamole for extra flavor. 

Ingredients - 

Short Grained Rice 1 1/2 cup (I used Sona Masuri)
Pinto Beans 1/2 cup 
Assorted Vegetables finely chopped (Carrots, Green Beans, Colored Peppers) 2 cups
Peas 3 Tbsp
Corn 1/2 cup
Avocado, mashed 1 cup
Garlic 2-3 cloves
Salt and Green Chili paste as needed
Lemon/Lime juice 2 Tbsp or as needed
Coriander leaves few
Olive Oil 2 Tbsp (divided use)



Method Of Preparation -


Wash and soak Pinto beans 4-6 hours. Boil the beans with some salt and set aside.

Cook rice as per your preference (in a rice cooker, pressure cooker or in a pot on stovetop).

Blend the avocado, 1 tablespoon of oil, lime juice, garlic, salt, coriander leaves and green chili paste to make guacamole.

In a heated pan, add oil and saute the vegetables. After the vegetables are 80% cooked, add in the cooked and drained beans. Sprinkle salt and add green chili paste. Mix well.

Remove from heat. Add in cooked rice and mix well. Allow it to cool a little.

Add in the guacamole as needed and mix gently. Adjust the flavors as needed.

Serve at room temperature with additional guacamole if needed.

  5. Great idea for using avocado in rice !! It looks very appealing and also a healthy rice dish !!! do you have any tips to prevent the color change of avocado while packing for lunchboxes . I find it very hard to preserve the color of avocado !!

  7. @Sandhiya - The key to keeping the avocado from oxidizing is to add enough lime/lemon juice to it and keep it in an air tight container.

  9. That is a cool idea to stir in guacamole into the rice itself Harini. My husband is allergic to avocado, so I can make the rice for him and add the guacamole for the rest of us. I’m definitely going to be trying this recipe soon.
