Today again I post one more very interesting rice recipe i.e. “IMLI CHAWAL” from the “Cooking with Love” cook book written by Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.
Under this rice recipe, we have to cook rice and fold with tempering of tamarind pulp, mustard, red chili and curry leaves and garnish with roasted peanuts and sesame seeds. Tamarind enhances the flavour of rice in this method, my family really like this recipe.
