If you are spending January 26 at home, put together a tri-colour meal your family will love.

Masala Bhaat doesn't necessarily need to be restricted to comfort food.

When presented and plated well, as per Chef Jerson Fernandes's recipe, it can brighten up your Republic Day celebrations.

Chef Fernandes has been 17 years in his field and specialises in food presentation.

Masala Bhaat

Serves: 3


To garnish

To serve


For the carrot rice

For the spinach rice

For the dahi rice

For the tomato sauce


Chef Fernandes' Note: Always brush butter/oil on the inner surface of the ring mould to ensure the rice grains don't stick to the mould while demoulding.

While roasting the papad, it should be hot when rolling it up to get the desired shape and finish. If it's cold, it will break while rolling.

Chef Jerson Fernandes is the Culinary Director at Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach.
