  • Maya:

    (1) Would you mind posting a version using stove-top? That rice looks most enticing.

    (2) “Recipe courtesy – Vanitha …” Is Vanitha the famous Malayali magazine or a friend/ well-wisher?

    • (1) This was made in a stove-top 5 liter pressure cooker. You can use a sauce pan/ any other pan you prefer.
      (2) I followed this recipe from Vanitha magazine..I have updated it in the blog. Thanks for your comment.
