A very simple and easy recipe which only takes 30 minutes to cook.

I've used fresh easy to find vegetables but you can also use frozen vegetables. Just make sure that the veggies won't have many ice crystals cause that will add excess water in the rice.

Rice: I used basmati rice but you can use any rice of your choice. Just make sure you read the package thoroughly so that you know how much water you are supposed to use.

Vegetables: I used carrots,broccoli, cauliflower, green beans,peas,baby marrow,red pepper and yellow pepper.

Stock:I used 2 chicken cubes for taste and sweet chilli sauce. You can also use beef cubes or vegetable stock.
