#2. Vegetable Pilau Rice

Remember the food programme called “Gordon’s Great Escape” on the Channel 4 Series where instead of British and Mexican food, Chef Ramsay prepares a classic Indian vegetable pilau rice?

Ingredients You Will Need:

  • 400g basmati rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or unsalted butter
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 lightly crushed cardamom pods
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 peeled and finely sliced onions
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons red chilli powder
  • Salt
  • 50g finely chopped mushrooms
  • 75g green beans
  • 150g cauliflower
  • 2 large, peeled and finely chopped carrots
  • 100g peas850ml water
  • 30g raisins
  • 30g toasted pistachio nuts

Steps:

  • Step 1: Wash rice several times in cold water. Rinsing may be an annoying step, but it helps to remove dusty starches in rice. Let the rinsed rice soak in fresh water for a minimum of 30 minutes and then drain well and set it aside.

  • Step 2: In a huge pan, heat some oil and ghee or butter. Then, add cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, bay leaves and star anise and fry them all until they begin to crackle and a fragrance is released.

  • Step 3: Add the onions and fry the mixture for more than 10 minutes until it appears soft and golden brown. Now, pour the turmeric, coriander, chili powder and cumin over the mixture and fry for another one or two minutes.

  • Step 4: Add some more ghee or butter, pinch of salt and all the vegetables to the pan and mix and stir for 5 minutes.

  • Step 5: Add the drained rice and stir all the ingredients well before pouring some water. Don’t forget to add the raisins at this stage. Cover the pan with a firm lid and leave it to cook for about 10 minutes. Once the time is over, remove the lid and check the food. One way to be sure that your food is well cooked is when the rice looks dry and all the water has been absorbed.

  • Step 6: Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool down for a few minutes. Then, remove the rice and vegetables and put them in a plate and serve with toasted pistachios on top.
