Kushka Rice With Egg – A daily recipe

Kushka Rice With Egg

Kushka Rice With Egg is a recipe from the pages of South Asian cuisine, especially popular in south India. A rice dish made with aromatic basmati rice, simple spices, clarified butter, it’s quite subtly flavorful! Me being a non-vegetarian, to make the meal more filling I prefer to cook it with eggs. It’s generally served with korma dishes. It’s again a very easy to make, hastle free one pot meal that can be served to your family in no time. For more one pot meal recipes, please click here.
