After two sweet posts in a row, I'm sure you must be waiting to see something spicy cooking up here. Since I'm in no mood to be a spoilsport and disappoint you, spicy it is! I'm always on the lookout for some flavored rice recipes. The main reason for liking the flavored rice is you dont need too many curries to go with it unlike normal plain rice, so less cooking ;)
I usually get comments and mails from working mothers/wives asking for one pot dish/meal, which can be cooked easily. This is one such recipe. Since it's flavor packed by itself, I think it's better to have some light gravy/curry or if you ask me some raita would also do, along with some sweet & sour pickle like this lemon n dates.
