The rice and curry sizzler is ideal for a monsoon night, when you yearn for a steaming hot, spicy dinner that will make you feel snug and warm. It is a sumptuous one-dish meal that you can whip up quite easily. The use of pav bhaji masala gives it a very enticing flavour despite the simple procedure. If you do not have a sizzler plate, you can serve on a hot, sterilized dish that will retain the heat for a while, but the rice and curry should be piping hot, and the arrangement should be neat and tempting!
