Recipe by Charishma_Ramchandani
This is something I came up with a few days back when I cooked brown rice(for my mom who is diabetic) and she did not like the taste of it because she is so used to eating the Tilda White Basmati rice. So, I thought why not add in some of her favourite puliogare rice and prepare a new rice. I did what my instinct told me and voila - she loved it! Try this and please all your loved ones. Enjoy :) Note: You do not have to use garam masala powder for this. What you have to use is called PULIOGARE POWDER. It is available at any Asian spice store. Its got awesome flavour which all who love spicy food are going to enjoy for decades;) Zaar is not letting me post just "puliogare powder" and has taken it as puliogare garam masala powder. Please use ONLY puliogare powder and not garam masala powder. They are very different and you won't get the same taste if you used garam masala powder.
