I never tried cooking rice in microwave, after googling and reading loads of rice dishes been prepared in microwave pulled me really to try out this simple cashew rice...this cashew rice ressembles very much in between jeera rice and ghee rice, thought of preparing simple jeera rice i soaked rice for 15 minutes and started preparing the spices etc, but finally i added a cup of store bought coconut milk and slit opened green chillies and few cashew nuts while cooking, which made this rice more delicious than wat i tried to do..I was very happy to prepare this rice through microwave coz its really needs almost 20 minutes to prepare..we had this cashew rice with paneer jalfrezi for our sterday's lunch, just loved it!!!!..My last entry to MEC-Nuts guest hosted by Mythreyee of Paajaka, event by Srivalli also to CFK-Rice guest hosted by Trupti of Recipe Center, event by Sharmi n Lets Go Nuts guest hosted by Poornima, event by Aquadaze...
