Delicious, slightly tangy, basmati rice with a touch of cilantro.A great blend of flavors that give a soothing and comforting taste. Fresh lime juice wake up your taste buds and cilantro jazz up the white rice to create an outstanding rice dish.

My love for this dish started here......

Cilantro Lime Rice

Friday nights are almost often eat-out nights! Its the end of the work week so we are tired but we are in mood to eat something tasty (of course!), healthy(yeah right!) and satisfying. By default, our friday night eat out place is Chipotle. We loooooove the burrito bowl and my favorite part is cilantro lime rice.

Burrito bowl is black beans layered on a bed of Cilantro lime rice, with a serving of grilled meat or veggies, topped with pica de gallo, a dollop of sour cream and guacamole served in a bowl.

Fluffy white rice is tossed with fresh squeezed lime juice and chopped cilantro. The tangy lime infused basmati rice is mild yet flavorful. Seasoned black beans add a nice bite and the extra kick to the dish. This light, healthy and hearty dish is the perfect choice for any meal.

Chipotle is one of my fav too - and ofcourse the Burrito bowl. I think adding some flavored chicken to this (for non-vegetarians) is a good option too!
