Poushtik Moti (Seasoned and spiced Rice balls)

Wish you All a very Happy Diwali.. Hope everyone is enjoying the festival. Today’s post is going to be short because I’ve to cook for Diwali lunch, then attend an early Thanksgiving party in the evening. Too many things going on in the head and in the kitchen, so I’m going to keep this post short and simple. This dish is perfect for days like the one I’m having today.
