Corn and peas yellow Rice

This rice is made with corn and peas which not only gives a great taste but also a nice color to it.
The chaat masala  added to this increases the flavor of rice and gives it a tangy taste. One can make it as a tiffin meal too for kids. A great and quick to make recipe which you can enjoy with Green chutney and flavored curd/yogurt !!!
