Flavour, aroma, texture, the Herb Rice with Creamy Mushroom and Asparagus Sauce has it all! Tauntingly aromatic herb rice cooked with parsley and basil, is topped with a tangy yet creamy sauce of mushrooms and asparagus. The topping too has a dash of oregano, which makes this a very herby dish indeed. However, it is interesting to note that the herbs do not overpower the taste, as they are beautifully balanced by the mushrooms, vegetables, tomato puree and fresh cream. Overall, it has a very unique flavour that lovingly lingers in your palate.

Basil and parsley gives a strong and amazing flavour to the rice. So equally tasty is the mushroom sauce. Not so spicy and creamy. If you dont have mushrooms, you can also make this sauce using babycorn and broccoli.
