      This really is a beautiful dish Moryan, so very pretty. The best part is that it tastes great. There are many many flavors and you can taste each one seperately. The flavors and textures blend and compliment one another perfectly. Kudos on a wonderful rice dish that will be enjoyed often in my home.
