Favorite Rice Dishes Event Roundup-A big Thank you to all

The month of November came to an end and it also brought an end to the event Favorite Rice Dishes that I have been Guest hosting for Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen. Though very frankly I haven't been able to do much justice to her wonderful event. I even made a silly typing mistake in giving my email ID which was realized and corrected only by the 20th. Have to thank Nandita of Nan's Yum-Yum's for letting me know of the typing mistake..sorry Nandita should have listened  to you earlier!! 
So dear friends if your sent recipe is not in the list below, please forgive me and inform me at so that I can do the needful and add to enrich the list further.
