    Debloves2cook's Note:

    I received this recipe from dear friends of our family. For years, they generously entertained us westerners with their traditional family recipes and finally after so many requests they made a recipe book as a gift to all their very grateful friends. The recipes, including this one are from the Punjab region of India. This rice dish is a traditional Indian recipe and is a great addition to any curry dish. This rice dish may seem a little more difficult than some, but it is well worth the effort.

      This was very good - I used brown rice and did not wash it because I have heard that washes away the nutrients. Other than that I followed exactly and it's a keeper. Thank you !
