  • If you do not have sprouts prepare the recipe with carrot and potato.
  • Carrot is the important and essential ingredient of this recipe. So it can be prepared only with carrot which tastes similar.
  • You can serve with just plain onion raita. Additional vegetables in the raita would give a blunt taste to the rice cooked.
  • Do not add chilli powder or turmeric powder to this recipe which is a secret tip.
  • I used sona masoori as per her advise. You can use normal ponni rice else basmati.
