Announcing Rice Mela ~ Celebrating Rice in different forms!

Sharing is caring!

Can you imagine a day without eating rice? I might get mixed reactions for this. But are you one of those people, who need to have rice atleast once a meal in some form? Do you feel deprived if you don’t have it for atleast one meal in a day? Then you are plagued with the need to find new ways to eat this. Maybe you are comfortable with eating with side dish or make dishes with Non Veg. But what if you run out of ideas?

Well here comes an answer to your quests. So this edition of Mela will hope to answer all your needs in finding a dish with Rice as the main Ingredient. I hope you will indulge me again with all your beautiful creations. It can be sweet or in any form but using Rice as the main ingredient!

What is accepted:

Any dish which has rice as main ingredient and in any form. It can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. When I say that there are breads made from Rice flour or used in soups, I hope you get the draft! It can be both Veg and Non-Veg. And from any Cuisine.
