I love the grains separated and the beautiful saffron colour of the rice. The bowls are elegant and the contrast renders an extra touch to the beautiful click. Recipe sounds easy and relishable.

I tried this today, it turned out perfect. I added carrots & broccoli stalks just to have some more veggies for health. Loved the rice. Thanks Jeyashri, whatever I've made from your blog has come out nice.
