Yellow Rice


The perfect accompaniment to the Meat Curry I posted earlier under the category Meat dishes.

This is a typical Sunday Anglo-Indian meal. Yellow rice and chicken/meat curry.

Ingredients : -

Rice - 1 cup

Onion - 1 large (sliced lengthwise)

Cooking oil - 1 tbsp

Cloves, cardomoms, cinnamon sticks, peppercorns - 2 0r 3

Bay leaves - 2

Turmeric (haldi) - 1/2 tsp

Salt - to taste

Hard - boiled eggs - for garnishing

Process :-

Heat the oil. Add the sliced onion, fry till golden brown. Remove a little and set aside for garnishing.

Add raw rice to the fried onions in the pan.

Stir vigorously to prevent sticking. Add salt and whole spices, turmeric and bay leaves. Add water (enough to cook the rice, about 1 cup less than double the quantity of rice e.g. 2 cups rice, 3 cups water).

Cook covered on a low flame for about 10 mins after the water comes to a boil. The cooked rice must not be soft but firm.

Garnish on top with fried onions set aside and sliced hard-boiled eggs (typically arranged along the circumference)
