  36. I think I am the last one to comment on ur post.
    Adding Sambar pwd is something very new to me. It would have a nice aroma I suppose. I usually make fried rice in this manner only. But u have given an entirely new twist o this rice by adding sambar pwd and kitchen king masala, Sure I will try next time and will let u know. U have done a very good job and the rice has come out so well. Wonderful clicks too dear.
    Which brand Sambar pwd do u use?? Because i make my own sambar pwd.
