Brown Rice – Yogurt Salad

Brown Rice Yogurt Salad

Almost end of the week, thought of making Biryani, so boiled some brown rice…….Temperature outside was around 82F……….MOOD Change !!!!! Now want to eat something chilled……..And I’m left with a bowl of brown rice………So here’s what I ended up eating “Brown Rice Salad Shots” – Surprisingly tastes really Yum n Turned out to be healthier n filling than Biryani πŸ˜‰
