It's so freaky how Friday rolls around so quickly!
 I made this recipe for one Friday Lunch 
and it was so different than our usual traditional rice dishes. 
I love how spicy it was, 
I did go a bit heavy handed on the chilis
 so you can adjust the quantities for your palette.

This recipe is perfect if you want to serve it with a full chicken cut in pieces,
salad and chips 
or even grill it in the oven. 
Now this spicy rice is a bit different from the one I shared before,
which you can click here to check it out if you want another version.
