“This is a very simple, quick and easy recipe to make, you can have it on the table in about 35-40 minutes and that time is only because, of the longer cooking time for the rice. It tastes very good, I serve mine with a yogurt sauce, which I will list ingredients below, but you can serve as is or with whatever is your preference.”
