Easy One Pot Rice Dish – Tehri or Taheri from Uttar Pradesh

 A one pot rice dish that is hearty, fragrant with spices full of vegetables – that’s Tehri or Taheri for you! My version is cooked in mustard oil which adds so much flavour; and a bunch of spices.

The easiest Chocolate Orange Mousse you’ll ever make!

I’d once heard Cindy Crawford talk about how after the indulgence of Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties, she likes Valentine’s Day to be a bit low key – you know, special (like a bunch of roses), but not over the top.
