"This rice is a little sour and tangy, very traditional south Indian food. It is easy to make and one of my favorites. I hope you would enjoy it too. All the best." — sree

It is easy to make :) sometimes I have difficulty with Indian cookery as I'm a spin and toss cook and so getting careful with measurements (since I am not sure what I am doing) makes it complicated for me. with this one I decided to pay attention to the recipe, no additions or omitions, but I did add more cashews (love 'em) and a few less curry leaves (had to go to a specialty shop for those) and a couple less peppers as I am not fond of TOO much heat. the result was sour and tangy as you said, which I am glad you did otherwise I wouldn't have been able to describe the tast combination. and I always love cooking cumin seeds the way they pop around the pan. thanks so much! hope to see more of your recipes.
Love Indian food. My family loved this.
Made with brown rice & no red chilies!
