If u need for a simple, quick,delicious at the same a flavourful rice dish, do try this mushroom ajwain rice, since i had some fresh mushrooms,i tried out this rice with mushrooms..U can surely use any sort of veggies for making this delicious rice..Ajwain gives a beautiful flavour to this rice and if u serve this rice with papads or with spicy potato fry,they tastes absolutely divine and nothing will beat this combination..This rice suits prefectly for a lunch box menu or for a get together party, even with a non vegetarian side dish am damn sure that this rice will be definitely a big hit..To spice this rice, i just used slit opened green chillies and store bought pav bhaji powder,both together turned out this rice even more delicious..Sending to my own event CWS-Ajwain seeds guest hosted by Kavita..
