08/15/2012: Happy Independence Day - I made this three layer rice special; each layer representing the color of the National Flag; celebrating the 66th Indian Independence Day. I hope the colors are seen well. Missing blue since I did not understand how to make Blue Rice, hadn't found any Blue Food Color either.

Lower Layer: Green color - Cilantro Rice
Middle Layer: White color - Jeera Rice
Upper Layer: Orange color - Saffron Rice
