“This is just something I put together in the afternoon today as I had a few fresh mint leaves on hand and pre-soaked white Basmati rice. I had soaked the rice for 24 hours, which is not something I normally do, but I found that it tasted very good today and the flavour of mint was an extra bonus! I used Surti Kolam rice. You can try other brands of Basmati such as Kohinoor. Give this a go and you won't be disappointed :)”
