About the recipe

This rice preparation is a royal, mildly flavored dish which is complemented with crisp vegetables, dry fruits, fresh fruits and bread slices. To give it a distinct, desi flavor, vegetables and other aforementioned ingredients are deep-fried in pure ghee.

It is such a motley of extraordinary flavors that I can still sense its taste in my palette. Fresh grapes and pomegranates are also used in this dish which lends it a nice taste.

Serving Suggestions

If you are a fan of raita like me, then do serve it with Boondi Raita. So, there you go, make sure to note down its recipe and don’t forget to let me know if it tasted finger-licking!
