If you ask me what is the best invention in kitchen appliances glossary is a proper rice cooker. I own a prestige rice cooker which is my bestest friend in kitchen. This clearly tells me that I should do a separate post for that. I am using my rice cooker from the day we bought it, it has never failed me. Each time it cooks rice perfectly and fluffy.
I have started a new series called as rice cooker recipes in my blog and going to explore all the possible way to use it. This is my first recipe, a very basic and simple peas pulav. This is best served with any hot and spicy curries..I hope you will love it and ask me any questions about rice cooker.
