Recap of A - Z Rice Dishes / Cooking Carnival Event

It's time for the recap of the 'A - Z Rice' series I posted last month as part of the BM #68, aka Cooking Carnival. There was a choice for participants to go with either an ingredient or a category on a weekly basis or on a monthly basis. I settled almost on 'Breakfast' category before again wracking my brain over my theme and finally figured a rice dish would make the other adult at home really glad. The poor guy usually would be at work away from home and us on weekdays. He looks forward to some home cooked meals by the time he reaches home on weekends, or for some rice based meals to be precise being a south Indian. I therefore decided to pick 'Rice' as my ingredient for the marathon so that I would have some one to share the dishes that were prepared during the last few months.

I chose to divide my dishes between the following four categories so that it would be easier to pick my choice of dishes for the series and also to provide variety. My focus was mostly on spicy, one pot meals from Indian cuisine though you may not see some popular choices in the list as I may have already posted them previously on my blog. Some of the below dishes are a regular feature in my kitchen and some were tried for the first time. Among the latter, Dindigul Biryani, Gatte ka pulao, Varhadi pulao, Urad dal khichdi and Oliya have kind of become recent favorites.
