There is is a downside of creating a dish in the evening and then taking the pictures in the artificial light…. It’s just not it :(… Well I had made a small portion and if I had waited for the morning to take the pictures of the dish…it would have be gone and I would have been clicking the pictures of an empty bowl..lol…nonetheless, it was delicious and the garlic and mushroom flavors with robust amount of black pepper, just danced in my mouth. Hey Anitha,…. You reading this? This is for you :).
I always have leftover rice in my fridge ad eating them plain every time is too boring. This is one rice dish which is not complicated and calls for only few ingredients..no added spices besides black pepper and salt…so if you have mushrooms and garlic at home….get cooking with your left over rice… Dress your white rice :). Oh that’s an idea to throw….do leave a comment about how you dress your leftover rice ;)…
