Delicately fragrant with spices and rich with fruit and nuts, this rice dish is traditionally served on special occasions. Known as mishti pulao (sweet rice), I call this Bengali speciality “royal” as it feels extravagant and I serve it as a treat on festival days and at family feasts. With a light undertone of sweetness and a heavenly golden colour, it will perfectly accompany any of the curries in this book.
