This dish is cooked in a traditional Indian deep iron pan called "handi". It is believed that cooking in iron utensils increases the iron content of food, however rice is also naturally rich in iron, so you can be double sure that this recipe will boost your haemoglobin levels. Marinating the vegetables and rice in spices enhances the flavour of this dish, but ensure that you marinate it for at least 30 minutes for best results.
