Simple Pilau Rice that works well with many Indian Dishes. I use this rice with my Chicken Korma to my Balti.
With only a few ingredients this rice I full of flavour and has a very nice colour to it as well.
Long Grain Rice
The original recipe for this was much the same however it had cashewnuts, sultanas and onion in it however I took all that out and made it more simple, and let these few flavours stand out more.
Long grain rice in a pan with water. Add a shake of salt. Add in turmeric with will give the rice is yellow colour. 1 bay leaf in (I like to use it for a garnish, makes the rice look nicer) and a cinnamon stick. Bring to boil and cook until the rice is soft. Drain remove the cinnamon stick and the bay leaf and serve. I use a presentation ring to present mine which gives it a much more professional look.
Any comments appreciated.
