Garlic Rice - India

"This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 - India. This recipe was found on Indian Food Forever. Rice is another of those Internations dishes. I love rice dishes and am always on the look out for new ones to prepare. I am lucky that my picky dh loves rice also and is willing to try them. This one promises to be tasty. Use as much salt and pepper as you desire."

I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
