  • Top it with beaten curd, a rolled crispy papad and fresh sprigs of corriander/garden greens. The tomato sauce has to be poured around the rice. The beaten curd has to be mixed with cumin powder and lined on the side, over which you place roasted peanuts, chana dal, fried red chillies, curry leaves and edible flowers of your choice (either rose petals or baby sunflowers). Accompany with a lemon wedge to squeeze before eating.

Chef's tip: Always brush butter/oil on the inner surface of the ring mould to ensure the rice grains don’t stick to it while de-moulding. Ensure while roasting the papad, it is hot while being rolled to the desired shape and finish. If it’s cold, it will break while rolling.
