Dear Asiya akka,
Rice looks delicious.
I have one doubt.this measurement is for how many persons?
Is this good with normal tanjavur ponni[royal che f]
As my parents having diebatic,so am asking to u akka.

Asiya Omar said...

unknown, this is for four- five persons,this tastes good in tanjavur ponni also. But you have to add coconut milk(HALF COCONUT) while cooking with ponni puzhungal.
