I created this rice dish tonight when we had very close friends come home it being the weekend and holiday season. Everyone loved this aromatic and slightly spicy rice and I must for sure double this the next time(which will be very soon) I make this. This rice, alongwith yogurt, makes excellent lunch when you want to have a "one dish meal". The real pleasure of this dish will be known yo you if you have it as finger food, it is really good!
