    An amazingly delish idea by me this festive season for you all. The aromatic rice speaks for itself when it is served to your guests. Made totally my way using spices from my pantry of my choice and liking. Use any number of veggies you wish for this. A complete one pot meal that can be relished on it's own or with a simple mint raita as i did. Stunningly beautiful and aromatic due to the spices used that adorns your dining table with it's neat presentation and looks. Happy Cooking!
