Lotus Seed Tingling Rice

Lotus Seed Tingling Rice - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Lotus Seed Tingling rice is my brainchild recipe. It is a unique recipe unlike the routine rice varieties as I gave a new version of using phool makhana in a spicy vegetarian food which is often used in sweet preparations. This can be served as a traditional vegetarian recipe during festivals.
