ZWT 6. An Indian recipe by Revathy Kumar. We tried this and liked it very much. We had it with barbecued chicken that was seasoned simply with onion paste mixed with smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and a cucumber salad.

This is a nice rice dish, with lots of good flavors from the seasonings and the chile. It also has a great color with the red of the rice and the green of the cilantro and scallions added at the end. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
