My husband loves this rice. This is an "emergency rice" that is pretty quick to fold together if you have leftover cooked rice on hand. I made this for dinner tonight for my dad and hubby. Both loved it. Please have this with dahi (home-made curd/yoghurt) for enjoying it best. Serve pappadams (papads) with this for a nice snack. Enjoy!
