Oh man i wish Otis could taste this!
2 cups basmati rice fried dry in bacon fat and olive oil
Then drowned in chicken stock add a little cumin cayenne pepper onion powder garlic powder oregano black pepper salt and chili oil
And the tiniest bit of mustard powder to make the oil mix into the stock. Covered and allowed to steam until the stock is fully absorbed makes this frugal staple a meal for kings!
oh and don't forget to top with butter before serving!
I made “golden coconut rice” today, which is something I just made up.
I had some spices (ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, dates) left over from making golden milk earlier today, so I decided to reuse them in a decoction (simmered about 30 min) of the remaining coconut milk topped off with water as the rice cooking liquid.
I added salt, extra black pepper, and about a teaspoon of turmeric to the cooking liquid for flavor and to make it a pretty golden color.
