  • The sugar added in the last step caramalizes and gives out a crunchy bite. (This step is optional) Instead of adding saffron, edible orange color can also be added.

Notes

  • Even if no saffron or color is added, the rice takes the color of jaggery.
  • Be careful about water quantity or the rice will become too soft. Can use oil instead of ghee. But change in taste will be noticeable.
  • Tairi is served with Sai Bhaji and tuuk as a meal.
