Baked Brown Rice with Carrots and Coconut Milk

When I cook brown rice I bake it. It works better for me, plus am lazy anyway so I like popping things in the oven while I do other stuff. It rained here the whole day yesterday. There is still no sign of sunshine, but it’s a beautiful day with lots of birds chirping and building nests. I wish you a very pleasant day! Continue reading

Kheema Pilau

The word Kheema means “minced”. So this is basically Minced Beef Pilau or ground beef pilau. I loved the sweetness of the sultanas (golden raisins) and the crunch of the cashew nuts. The addition of cream gave it an extra special taste. Please do not omit the cream. This week is fantastic. Sunshine all day long. I wish you a pleasant day. If you like I can send you some virtual sunshine. Continue reading

Southwest Chicken Skillet

I seem to get so busy these days so I am always looking for a quick recipe that takes the minimum time possible. I found this on Budget Bytes by Beth. At first, I must say I was very skeptical but then the dinner turned out really great. The best part of this recipe? throw all ingredients into the pot, add the broth, season to taste (I added cumin and Paprika), bring to boil and simmer for twenty minutes. I have added this to my quick recipe repertoire and I plan to make it again, soon. Have a pleasant week! Ours is full of sun….such a beautiful day! Continue reading

Baked Brown Rice with Sweet Potato and Coconut Milk

We eat brown rice once or twice a week. I always try to spice up the rice and add different ingredients. On this day I added sweet potatoes and coconut milk. It turned out to be one of the best brown rice dishes, we’ve ever had. If you love sweet potatoes then I would highly recommend this rice for you. I added some chillies so it had a subtle sweet and spicy taste. I wish you a very exciting long weekend.  Continue reading
