26th Jan is the Indian Republic Day.Its the day the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly sovereign state. In this day India became a totally republican unit.

Since childhood this one holiday has been a total fun day for me. My dad used to work in the electricity so on republic day morning at 7:00am he would take me to see the flag hosting in his station. We would be back by 9:00am, and mom would always come up with very special breakfast every republic day a new different and yummy breakfast. And then we would watch the republic day celebrations on the tv. A wonderful day that I terrible miss nowadays.

Well as for the story behind this recipe,a few days back I saw the Veg Tiranga Rice in th CookingEscapades blog and I totally adored it. So yesterday morning while watching the parade on tv I thought that I want to create something that says "REPUBLIC DAY" so here it is... :)
