Wasabi is called as Japanese horseradish and used in Japanese cuisine. The paste form of wasabi is usually served in sushi restaurants. Nowadays, wasabi flavoured munchies are also available in the markets. It has a strong pungent and spicy flavour. So, be careful while adding it to the dish. According to the quantity of wasabi used in this recipe, the rice is not spicy but it gives a lovely flavour. This is a perfect lunchbox recipe which can be served with Tomato sauce or manchurian.
