Shawal's Bokhara Rice

As I was browsing the internet for receipe, I came across a very familiar name. Shawal's Bokhara Rice. It is my father's!

My dad have always been a very good cook. They said mom's cook is the best, but my dad's is even better. No kidding. He is also so good at making difficult and complicated dishes like Bokhara Rice. I think I got the flair from him... hehehehe.

People always come to him to get recipe, so I guess someone is kind enough to share the recipe on internet (I'm pretty sure It is not my dad, coz, errr... I just knew :p)

I never cook the rice on my own, coz I have my dad... hehehe. But trust me its really2 good. try it!
