Pav Bhaji Flavored Rice with Corn Raita

BM # 18  Day 3

Rice forms an integral part of the life of all Indians.  While going through the varieties of rice, I was amazed.There are more than 40,000 varieties.I had heard of only a few, I stock only basmati rice as this is the rice that I have eaten since childhood so basmati tops the list in my cooking.Jasmine,sushi and arboiro are the trendy rice, or so I call them.These have been recently introduced to the Indian market.

Sticking to my love for basmati  I have  cooked  rice with pav bhaji masala and served  with corn raita.You could use  the variety of rice you like.
