This traditional maharashtrian rice is an amazing combination of spicy flavours and mouth-watering textures. When served with low fat curds, or raita, it makes a complete meal in itself. Instead of brinjals and tendli, you can choose vegetables that are handy and whip up an easy nutritious meal in a jiffy.

Nice healthy low fast rice which is pressure cooked to perfection and has a good array of brinjal, cauliflower and tendli.
