Recipe by Bint e Naeem
I have been eating this dish since I was a child. I am not exactly sure if this is how Indonesian rice are actually made as this recipe is a bit on the spicy & savory side. Not as spicy as how many of my dishes are but very flavorful. When we are craving for rice but nothing too spicy like Biryani I usually end up making these rice. Although all of my siblings are living their own lives in a way but this is one recipe that really ties us from back in the days & is a family favorite.
- 2 lbs chicken (cut into small pieces) or 2 lbs mutton (cut into small pieces)
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons red chili powder
- 1⁄3 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon garam masala powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
- 3⁄4 cup oil
- 2 medium tomatoes (chopped)
- 1 1⁄2 medium onions (sliced)
- 2 cups basmati rice (soaked in water for half an hour)
