Nimbu Ka Chaval (Saffron Rice With Lime)
50 mins (prep 10, cooking 40)
17 ingredients
6-8 servings
Adapted from Time-Life Foods of the World. Black mustard seeds are the same thing as brown mustard seeds. If you can't find them, you can use yellow ones, but the flavor will not be as strong. I listed the boiling water and the water used to cook the rice separately, for clarity. NOTE: you will need a casserole dish that is safe to use both in the oven and on the stovetop.
