    Oh, everything sounds SO delicious! I particularly like the lemon rice! Here in the states – for the most part – rices are interchangeable. I’ve discovered that there’s a big difference between rices when I used basmati rice in something.

    ….and the flavoring agents you use are incredible! I love that each dish has an occasion attached to it and such fragrant spices!

    All of these rice dishes look fabulous! I always order Kheer when I eat Indian food. I love it! The Pulav looks quite interesting. I’m definitely going to give this one a try!

    Thanks for sharing the information here – It’s so fun to read about the so many different things. I find adding the right amount of water to rice one of the hardest things ever to get right! Needs a LOT of practice I think!

    Purabi, rice is a staple of my diet, too (I could make a meal out of it every day and never tire of it!) This recipe sounds like a wonderful variation of the “same ol’ same ol’!” — I never knew there were so many varieties. I love your research and am tickled for you that this was another Zomppa article for you! Thanks again for expanding my knowledge and flavors — I still want to make your Biryani! ALL of your recipes encompass the spices, techniques, and flavors I love. Thank you!

    I guess everybody has a fried rice recipe (http://foodconstrued.com/recipes/side-dishes/fried-rice/), but your vegetable fried rice sounds really good. I’ve never tried cumin seeds or cardamon before, but I’d like to one day.

    Thanks for the post.
