Rice Recipes are a staple part of diet for many people around the world. In India rice is predominantly eaten as a main course meal in eastern and southern parts of the country. In many traditional societies and cultures, rice is considered to be an auspicious food grain and is invariably used in rituals.
Rice recipes are popular and easy to combine with other ingredients. Rice is enjoyed in different ways in various parts of the globe and each preparation is unique and exquisite.
While many people in the West may consume rice as a simple side dish, rice remains the main meal in a large part of the world and is a full meal in its own right. The widespread use and liking for rice as a main food as well as side dish stems from its ability to readily absorb other flavors and ingredients on mixing which make the combination more palatable and wholesome.
Many easy and flavorful rice dishes can be made in under 15 minutes and besides the simplest form i.e. plain steamed rice, some other popular rice recipes include fried rice, lemon rice, curd rice, tomato rice, veg pulao, jeera pulao, zafrani pulao, biryani, khichdi, rice kheer, spanish rice etc. and the list is much larger. Besides this a lot preparations are based on rice flour which includes our own south Indian delights like Dosa, Idli, Uttapam etc.
In addition to numerous preparations based on rice, there are hundreds of varieties of rice itself due to different origins, cultivation techniques, different grain sizes, aroma, cross breeding etc. Rice is one ingredient which is a part of almost every cuisine in the world.
