Peanut Rice

Our whole family is die hard fans of peanut.. Anything made with peanut. I guess this is in our family genes because my grandmother, my father, my mother all of them love peanut. Even though it is good because of the protein it is also high in fatty content. I normally include peanut once a week in our meals. This rice is quick lunch box fix. My kids love it.
