Sometimes I add chicken pieces too.Well, you can always try something new. I don’t follow blindly a recipe.I try to understand the science, the method of making any dish. That’s why all those traditional methods of cooking fascinate me a lot.

I too love to collect traditional cookware. My friend gifted me two clay-pots from Kerala which is used to prepare the popular Meen Curry. I am using one of them to set some curd at home. I just love the smell of home-made curd in a clay pot. Have you ever tasted?

You can also cook this Mint-Rice in a clay pot. This will enhance the taste and flavor a level up.
