DIRECTIONS

  • In a large heavy skillet or saute pan with a tight lid (can be non-stick), sprayed with oil, saute the onion, bell peppers, hot peppers, and garlic until the onion begins to brown a bit. Add water a tablespoon at a time to keep them from sticking, as needed.
  • Add the cilantro, coriander, and cumin, and stir-fry for a minute.
  • Add the raw rice and stir-fry briefly.
  • Pour in the beer and the hot water with the bouillon, and the peas, with pepper to taste, plus your Protein choice and any Optional addition you might be using.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes(longer for whole wheat basmati-about 45 mins), or until the rice is done.
  • Toss ingredients and taste for salt and pepper.
