Recipe by Karen From Colorado

An Indian meal is not complete without rice to soak up some of the liquids of the other Indian dishes that is piled on and around it.

The kitchen smelt great when this rice was cooking. I made it for lunch this afternoon and we enjoyed it to the fullest with Palak raita(spinach curd) which is recipe number 24973. Together, these made for a complete meal and I thoroughly relished every morsel of it:) My mom loved it as well, thanks, Karen!!
