Yesterday, in my daughter’s school Independence day celebrations were held. Along with flag hoisting and march past parade, various cultural programmes were presented by the students.

Though my daughter participated in patriotic song singing, but what made her happy was, exemption from bringing food according to schedule. She requested me to make something that fits into Independence day celebration.

Tricolor Sweet Rice

Since she is very fond of sweet rice, so I immediately decided to make sweet rice and pakoras. To give it independence day touch, I made tiranga rice i.e. Tricolor Sweet Rice. For making these tricolor sweet rice, I used my Kesariya Rice recipe with little bit of variations. I reduced sugar from ⅔ to ¾ of cup and instead of using saffron, I used orange and green food colors to give it a desired tricolor effect.

Celebrate our Independence Day with this Tricolor Sweet Rice. Here is the recipe….
