During this holy month, I like to create recipes at home that are a bit different and fun.
In this recipe, you learn how to incorporate an egg in your meal, giving it a flavour that is just unbelievable. Try it out and let me know.

Add in the grated carrots, mix well until combined then add in the sweet pepper, turmeric and tomato paste. Give it a good mix then add in the rice, continue to stir until flavours coat the rice well. Add in 1 litre of water, add in some salt to taste and the whole green chili.
Bring to a boil once the liquid has almost evaporated. Add in the peeled hard boiled eggs. Cover with a tight lid, reduce heat and let it steam until all the water has evaporated. Fluff up the rice and serve it as a meal on its own with the eggs on the side.
