For plating

    • Take a white plate.
    • Grease an even edged cup with ghee or oil.
    • Scoop the orange rice in the cup and press it well.
    • Place it upside down on the top end of the plate. Tap slowly to make the perfect shape.
    • Repeat with white and green rice to look like the colours of tiranga.
    • Alternately, you can also simply place the coloured rice one by one, evenly on the plate.
