Republic Day Special 2019 New Recipe Tricolour Rice

Republic Day is here, and the tri-colour themed recipes are something which everyone wants to try their hands at. The method is much more than just tri-coloured themed as it lets you savour three different flavours all at once.

This Republic Day I thought to share one of the most-loved and easy-to-prepare tri-colour recipes which you can make it at home without any much ado. It is as simple as it can get, and as delicious as you want it to be.

To begin with, you will have to prepare the Orange/Saffron Rice. It has a touch of western flavours and tastes a bit mild as compared to the Green Rice. It is Cheesy, and the sourness of Tomato makes it a perfect treat to eat for all the age groups, especially children.

The second layer is the White Rice, which plays the balancing role between the Orange/Saffron and the Green layers of Rice.

The third layer, Green Rice, is on the healthier side. It is full of Indian spices and flavours. Also, if you add Raita into the combo, then it would make a complete meal for children.
