Masala Rice

Standard

Masala Rice is something different from all other rice recipes, very simple, easy, less time consumption. Been blogging for almost 2 years, have come across many people in my life both negative and positive. This recipe was shared by one such lovely person, who I knew almost few months’ time – Harsha. When I saw his food picture, I found it delicious and wanted to try it immediately. As the recipe was shared by night and no one in my home wants to have rice for dinner, I planned to prepare it for today’s lunch. The most advantage in this recipe is that one can prepare it even with the leftover rice from lunch and serve hot for dinner. Let us move on to the recipe…
