I love this combo. I learnt how to make this a couple of months ago and have already made it thrice.

I first time, I learnt it the recipe.

I spiced up the combo by making the plain rice into a herb-ed butter rice. Turned out really great in taste with the stroganoff and I felt I was eating some real exotic meal at home!

Second time, I doubled the quantity.

The third time I tripled the quantity – OMG. And still there were no left-overs.
PS: In all fairness – the number of persons I shared the meal with, also increased.   : )
