Just out of the Diwali hangover,and I realise ,I still have my hands full ,with all the washing and unpacking! You clean , cook and shop weeks before the festival , and here it comes and goes in just a span for few days..and you are left with again a messed up home ,loads of washing and gifts which need you readjusting your shelfs to accomodate them! And amist all this , you still have the daily cooking too! Gosh…Its so compicated at times! This spiced up rice ,happened on one such complicated evenings,when I was hasseled with all the chores and couldnt think of anything much to cook…and worse ,my maid was on leave…(yea..its everybody’s diwali!) So cooked up this one pot meal ,spicy ,quick and without much efforts!
