Sakhar Bhat Kesar Bhat

Sakhar Bhat/ Kesar Bhat/Sweetened Rice Pulao Indian Style is an Indian Delicacy. Cooked on Festive Occasions it demonstrates the Versatile nature of Rice.

I adore sweets sadly I cannot say the same about the rest of my family members. They are sweet-haters, not all sweets mind you chocolates, ice cream, kaju katli welcome but come up with something like Sakhar Bhat it’s a definite no-no.

But I have a blog baby to feed and a hungry Archana who needs sweets to pep her up. Especially with the maid not there… The girls help but I cannot say do this and walk out!! In the honour of the maid here is an ode…

O my lady Maid how much I take you for granted!!!

I beg a thousand apologies !

Please do not take your holiday yet again in a long time to come!!!

Anyway, I am sure you have heard about Sakhar Bhat its very common in Goan Cuisine, Karnataka Cuisine and Maharashtrian cuisine.

This was a delicious and mild Sakahar Bhat you can add more sugar if you feel like but I loved it as it is.

Linking it to my Rice and its Versatile uses
