Kanika (the Sweet Pulao)
Kanika is a pulao recipe which is prepared during festivals in Orissa. It is a perfect example of spice and sweet recipe. The presence of spices gives the recipe a special flavor. The aroma of Desi ghee makes this recipe a very exceptional one. I learnt this recipe from my mother. She prepares this special rice dish during festivals (especially on Margasira masa Laxmi Puja days). I also love to prepare this recipe at home during festivals. Everyone in my family enjoys devouring this special recipe. You can serve this sweet pulao as a main dish at lunch or dinner.
