Thanks, everyone, for participating in the sixth From My Rasoi monthly food celebration event. The brainchild of Meena from Hooked on Heat, ‘rasoi’ means ‘kitchen’ in Hindi, the language spoken in most of India.

 

I chose RICE for June’s food theme. It’s global and versatile. Almost everyone eats rice — vegans, vegetarians, meat eaters, and even those who are gluten intolerant. One can also use rice flour as well as the grains.

Part of Meena’s rules for the event dictate that one can submit recipes that are Indian or non Indian in flavor. Our fellow food bloggers have presented an interesting array of ‘rice’ dishes.

Here is the lineup:
