some easy and important tips with variations to the curry leaves rice recipe. firstly, i have used sona masuri rice for the mixing with the curry leaves and lentil spice powder. well i would heavily recommend to used the same as it mixes properly when compared to other premium rice like basmati. secondly, i would heavily recommend to use fresh curry leaves to make this spice mixture. do not compromise on it and be generous while adding these fresh curry leaves. lastly, recipe tastes better when served next day as the rice absorbs the spice mix thoroughly. hence i would recommend to plan the dish well ahead in advance like overnight for next day lunch box.
