In my childhood I had this rice. However I almost forgot it. Recently I saw this in Venkatesh Bhat show. My aunt does it in a similar way but she adds peanuts and grated coconut. In this recipe I did add both. I have used brown rice for this but you can use normal white rice. This is perfect for party too.
