An easy & colourful dish with the beautiful sweetness of fresh corn and capsicum.
Rinse the rice under running water and then cook in a microwave rice cooker with 3 cups vegie stock or water, for 15 minutes on high.
Meanwhile, drain the kidney beans, chop all of the vegetables finely (except the corn). Remove the corn husks and discard. Boil a pot of water and add the whole corn cobs. Cook for about 10 minutes or until bright yellow and tender. Drain, and cut the kernels off the cob with a knife (run it down the length of the corn, holding it carefully with tongs or a tea towel as it will be very hot).
Once the rice is ready, heat a frying pan or wok with some oil. Quickly sauté the capsicum, onion, chilli and spices. When starting to soften, add the cooked rice, kidney beans, fresh tomato and peas/beans (if using). Toss everything together and cook for a minute or two.
Tip into a large serving bowl and pour over the lime juice and olive oil. Top with coriander leaves and toss. Serve into individual bowls, and add grated cheese & salt and pepper.
You could also serve with accompaniments of sour cream or guacamole if desired.
For non-vegetarians, add 250g of beef mince to the sauteed capsicum and onion, and cook until browned before adding the rice and other ingredients.
Can be made with pre-cooked rice and/or frozen corn to save even more time.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
