‘clearly oriental’ is the first thought that will strike you when you taste this. A delicious preparation of rice layered with a preparation of assorted veggies and marinated capsicum in tomato sauce, the layered spicy vegetable rice is actually a one-dish meal in its own right. It has everything from cereals and veggies to spices and tomato sauce too, and baking the arrangement ensures a uniform blend of flavours. Serve immediately with curds and sauce, and there you have a sumptuous meal on the table.
