    Anu's Note:

    This spicy rice delicacy is a perfect main dish for when you have lots of other last minute preparations, since rice cooks perfectly in a pressure cooker. Sprouts are easier to digest and abound in protein, calcium, iron as well as vitamin C. Serve with a chilled 'raita' or plain yogurt. This recipe is from

      Oh Anu! THANK U for such a wonderful lunch I just finished having - your spicy sprouts pilaf with chilled green cucumber raita! HEAVEN! I finally made this today after planning to do so for over a month. Mom and me enjoyed it to the fullest. I'll confess - I had 3 servings! I really loved the taste- it has the perfect blend of spices. It'll be a regular on our table from now on. I preferred to have it on its own first, then with the raita and then again on its own - I guess I am already addicted to it :) While the rice was 3/4 th cooked, I added in a few corriander leaves and reserved the rest for garnishing at the end. I loved this recipe. I must confess, I did not make it in my pressure cooker, but in the usual skillet. A BIG {{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}}}}}} TO U FOR THIS AWESOME PILAF!!!

      Fantastic. I have no words to describe how good it is. So very flavorsome also. I must say I used 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste and 2 green chillies which I slit (instead of ginger and green chilli paste), and it did taste very good. I too cooked it in the skillet. I added the water, added 1-1/2 tsps of salt, brought it to a boil, and then simmered it till done. Came out so well, everybody loved it. Thank you for a great recipe. Will be a regular in my house from now on. I also forgot to garnish but that did not really make any difference to the flavor. It was very good.
