ABOUT Sweet Rice/ Gode Gul Bhaat RECIPE

This is a popular sweet delicacy made in Maharashtra, the sweet rice is made either by adding sugar or jaggery as the sweetener. In winter months, this is made using jaggery and the flavours, coupled with the dry fruits and coconut which is also added to it lift it to another level altogether. My grandmother used to make it for family lunches in winter , I can still recall members of the family, sprawled on sofas,diwans, or even the floor,after a hearty meal,digging into dessert bowls/ katoris with their spoons and enjoying this sweet rice over lots of chitter-chatter. I have just recreated this dish,inspired by my grandmother and tried to give it a healthy twist by making it with brown rice.
