Mexican Vegetarian Burrito Bowl#Improv

Mexican Burritos bowls are mainly made with rice, beans, different types of sauces/dips, sour cream and lettuce. Although a burrito bowl sounds elaborate, but it's not so time consuming. 
My hubby loved this burrito bowl very much it was just restaurant style, finger licking. It's packed with flavors and an explosion of taste in the mouth as soon as to spoon in, a tangy, a bit of sour, spicy, juicy, cheesy and super tasty, delicious burrito bowl.
The Guacamole is a twist of taste, a tex mex cuisine, Indo Mexican. I have used a typical Indian spice with avocado and it takes this to a different level. I would say spicy and finger licking Guacamole. 
So let's start with our delicious  meal Mexican Vegetarian Burrito Bowl...

2 Cups Rice - washed and boiled
1/4 Cup Packed Mint leaves - torn into pieces

Wash and soak 1/2 cup each of dried red kidney beans and black eyed beans separately for 4 hours. 
Then pressure cook the red kidney beans with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 cups of water for one whistle on high flame then reduce to flame to low and keep it for 10 minutes. The red kidney bean are boiled to perfection. When the cooker cools down drain the liquid since we require only the red kidney beans. Keep this aside in a bowl.
In the same cooker place the black eyed peas and a cup of water with 1/4 teaspoon salt and take one whistle on high flame. Cool the cooker, drain the liquid since we require only the black eyed peas. Keep this aside in a bowl. This too is ready.

In the same cooker place the corn and a cup of water with 1/4 teaspoon salt and take one whistle on high flame. Cool the cooker and remove the corn. Take out the corn kernels and and keep it aside. This too is ready.

For Lemony Minty Rice

Wash and soak the rice then boil it till done. Drain all the excess water / starch. Add the torn mint leaves and lemon juice in it and give it a good mix. Keep this covered. 

Let's prepare Guacamole 
 - Indo Mexican Style 
In a blender jar take all the given ingredients with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and blend it to a smooth paste. Remove this in a serving bowl and drizzle the remaining tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil  on it so that it doesn't change the color - it remains green. Guacamole is ready.

For the Onion Bell Pepper Mix

Heat oil in a pan and saute chopped onions and bell pepper until soft. Add black pepper and salt to taste in it and turn the flame off. So here you have your fried Onion and bell pepper mix ready.
Keep two bowls ready. Since we are two I made two bowls only for lunch, the remaining we will have it for dinner.
