Independence Day: Tiranga Rice Recipe
Celebrate With Tricolour Rice!
To make the orange rice, heat ghee in a pan.
Add cumin seeds and once they change colour add the rice, ginger paste, red chilli powder and red chilli paste and cook.
To this add tomato puree, salt and one cup of water, give it a stir and cook till the rice is done.
To make the green rice begin again by adding the ghee and then cumin seeds to a pan.
Then add turmeric powder, rice, green chilli paste, ginger paste, salt and cook.
Add half cup of water and slowly bring it to a boil.
Add the spinach puree, give it a stir and cook till the rice is done.
Arrange orange, white and green rice on a plate in the form of a tricolour as shown in the picture.
You can make Ashoka Chakra with some cumin powder in the centre of the white rice if you're feeling creative.
Alternatively you can deep fry onions, remove excess oil on a kitchen towel and arrange them into the chakra.
