For Day 2 under Special Theme , I am posting recipes from the Parsi Cuisine which I posted during our Mega Marathon under Protein Rich .When I read Caramelised Rice , for a minute I thought it must be some kind of sweet rice with caramel . The rice does require some sugar , but only to lend it a tint of brown . After reading the recipe , I was amused because this is how my mil used to cook the Sindhi Bhuga Chawara . The difference is only of the added spice in Sindhi Cuisine .

 

The Parsi Caramelised Rice is served with most Parsi Dishes like Dhanshaak , Parsi Daal etc . The  rice is simple but tastes fantastic and the highlight of this rice dish is the fried onions , they give the rice an excellent crunch .
