We make the masala from scratch the usage of contemporary, complete spices and we simmer the masala gradual and occasional for steadily an hour, once in a while extra. Then we cook dinner white basmati rice one at a time, layer the 2 and after all end off with a flavoursome and vibrant garnish. No longer precisely a handy guide a rough, no-fuss dinner, is it?
