  • Summary

    A cracking South Indian dish great to eat on its own or as a side. There are so many different things you can do with rice, from cooking the rice with different ingredients as in a briyani or a pilau, or using left over rice and add some new simple flavours and textures to create an altogether new dish. This dish has a hint of lemon, which adds freshness, but I like it because of the crunch of the nuts and the vibrant colour. This is a wonderful dish to have in the sunshine as a rice salad that not only tastes great, but it looks like summer in a bowl!
