Chicken rice with Vegetables

My second recipe based on the chicken rice but now this is done with the vegetables. I have used carrots and green peas with this rice; you could also add mushroom, cauliflower, green beans and potatoes. After a long break I have tried out my own recipe, it was healthy and delicious. I have served this along with Chettinad Egg gravy. Do not think it may be some other cuisine; it’s a typical south Indian dish. Let us move on to the recipe…
