ZWT 6. An Indian recipe by Revathy Kumar. We tried this and liked it very much. We had it with barbecued chicken that was seasoned simply with onion paste mixed with smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and a cucumber salad.
Richly fragrant golden saffron rice pilaf (pilau) that's delicately scented with rose water & studded with pistachios, almonds, and sultanas, combined with moist, tender chunks of chicken infused with lemon, yogurt and musky spices: this is a FABULOUS one-dish meal! Inspired by a Nigella Lawson recipe, from one of her cookbooks. Wonderful served warm, or at room temperature. Enjoy!
I have tried many recipes trying to duplicate the dry Mexican rice you get at the restaurant. After a lot of tweaking this hits the mark. My hubby loved it and said this is the real deal. Hope you enjoy it!
This is the first dish I learnt as an adult and still it is my speciality... there's only one word to describe it... yum! When I'm cooking this for my husband and myself, I usually remove the legs whole, sprinkle them with spices and brown under grill, and then add the remaining chicken to the rice as per instructions.
This is as close to my mom's recipe as I can get with actual measurements since she eyeballs the ingredients and never measures. It is a "classic" version, and not the spicy or pineapple version you so often see in Thai restaurants. She is a native of Thailand and owned her own fantastic Thai restaurant for many years. This recipe is one of my favorites because it is so easy. The key is to use leftover, cold, jasmine rice and Thai fish sauce ONLY, no soy sauce or it will be Chinese fried rice. Serve this with Nam Prik Nam Pla Sauce Recipe #92042 to add a little spice and something extra to this dish!
This is so delicious and so simple. It's a little exotic, very flavorful, and will make your kitchen smell wonderful as it cooks - and my preference is to add extra cumin! I've never made it without first soaking the rice and lentils, but the dish could surely be adapted to no-soaking if you're looking to cut some of the prep time.
A very fragrant Indian side dish! I just love the cardamom! Ghee can be bought in any supermaket if you want check out my recipe to make it. Check out this thread http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=226770 on step x step pictures to make this.
