This is a great recipe!! I made a few minor changes and substituted the 1 cup of whole milk with evaporated milk and used sweetened condensed milk for garnishing three colored rice. I made it for a crowd and all it got eaten.

very easy recipe for zarda, and very different from others as well, it's just that good quality colors should be used in it. I added gulaab jamun into it too. Made it more sweet and tasty. My family loved this Three colored zarda.

The three-colored zarda never fails to cheer me or anyone my family members up when they are down. The secret is the delicious sweetness, the colorfulness of the rice really helps bring out the cheerfulness.
