Kaju-Gongura Rice

All these rice items are prepared very easily  and it will take very less time.Especially now a days I am looking for these rice items because both my darlings my daughter and my hubby started to take lunch boxes.This is a very nice Lunch box recipe.For the first time I prepared and it came very perfect.I like the tangyness which Gongura have naturally and if we take this gongura atleast once in a week it is very good for health as it contains more amount of Iron.I used pepper in this because in this winter season it is very good for our health.

Now here comes the recipe.
