Arroz a la Cubana (Cuban-style Rice)

I found this recipe from Periplus Mini Cookbooks “Filipino Favorites”. The recipe is interesting, Arroz a la Cubana combines the richness of meat with the sweet tastes of fried bananas and raisins, completed with eggs fried sunny side up. It looks quite easy, so I decided to try it on this weekend when we’re home. :)
