This spicy rice delicacy is a perfect main dish for the time when you have lots of other last minute preparations. All you have to do is to temper the rice and sprouts and let it pressure cook while you complete other chores. Sprouts are easier to digest and abound in protein, calcium, iron as well as vitamin C. Serve with a chilled low fat raita.
