  1. Is haldi also turmeric, but just a different term? Anyway, thanks for sharing this recipe. As I love spicy foods, I think I will add more turmeric when I try this. :P

    1. In Hindi language Turmeric is called as Haldi. There is no difference between the two terms.If you add more Turmeric to the rice it will only make the rice more dark orangish in color but not spicy.For enjoying a spicy rice you need to cook the rice adding grounded spices used to prepare a Khichadi or Pulao.
