Sweet Rice

Celebrations and sweets go hand in hand. As this year comes to an end ,here is a sweet dish for you all. May the year ahead be filled with immense joy and prosperity. Wishing all my readers a joyous 2015!

           This colourful, aromatic dish is commonly made in Indian households during festivals and loved by all. Sweet rice is a delicious treat with aroma of strands of saffron and dry fruits infused into it. It can be prepared by preparing a sugar syrup of two thread consistency or by letting cook slowly where the sugar dissolves. I am using the second method here.
