Happy Valentine’s Day!   I love Indian food, and this vegan spiced Indian rice is a staple in my diet. I make this rice even if I am not making other Indian dishes to accompany it. It makes the whole house smells divine!

It takes all my willpower and self-control not to finish the whole thing. This dish is a perfect side for Indian curries. The rice you will eat with every dish! I love this rice so much I even had for breakfast several times! The combination of spices and textures is too perfect.
