Garlic Pepper Rice

Garlic Rice is a simple and easy recipe you can make with left over rice. This is the first thing that me and my daughter can think of when we have left over rice at our house. This is my mother’s recipe. Enjoying this quick, yummy rice since childhood because of our love towards garlic. I improvised the actual garlic rice recipe by adding black pepper powder. This is like combining 2 simple recipes, garlic rice and pepper rice into 1 Garlic Pepper Rice.

The great flavor comes to this rice by adding uppu mirapakaya/majjiga mirapakaya/challa mirapakaya/curd chillies. This is the the second main ingredient in this recipe, of course after garlic.
