Hey Beautiful People!!!

Being preoccupied with tasks and mandatorily having to overcome unexpected obstacles by undertaking nonconventional steps is what life throws at you at times when you are in your most vulnerable state.
I have been going through a similar phase at the moment and well, I wont make you go through the misery of reading all about that since, I know everyone deals with similar issues at some point.

In the past week, I have been trying to incorporate more of temple food and improvising recipes to suit my taste.
Today, I will be sharing my easy and nutritious rice recipe that can be relished by everyone.

Now add the chopped onions and soften them making sure they do not turn brown and crispy.

Meanwhile, prep to steam the broccoli. If you do not have a proper steamer then do not worry. You can fill a sauce pan half way with water and let it come to a boil. Once water starts to boil, place a plate or any vessel that has holes in it that are small enough so the broccoli does not drop in the water. The holed vessel should be slighter larger in diameter than the one filled with water. Steam the broccoli only until it turns bright green as you do not want it to loose the nutrients and also you will be cooking it further in rice mixture.
Now, in the onion mixture add chopped carrot and add a pinch of salt. Let the mixture cook until the carrot cooks by 80% . You do not want to cook anything for so long that it turns mushy. Pour in soy sauce, oyster sauce, chilli flakes and crushed black pepper. Add the rice and combine everything well. Cook for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, gently toast sesame seeds in a different pan on low flame for 3-4 minutes. Add steamed broccoli to the rice and stir well. Cover and let it simmer on low for 3 minutes so all the flavours combine.
