This is a wonderful special-occasion recipe that never ceases to amaze guests. The only reason I am now comfortable with it is that, following my mum’s example, I tend to make a big rice dinner at least once every week and now, after a little practice, it’s a variation of rice we enjoy regularly aH.
I’m very very grateful for this recipe as it’s a huge favourite. If you do try it, let me know how it goes because as with a lot of this stuff, practice makes perfect and I hope I haven’t simplified the recipe down too much! OK, here we go…
Recipe for rice:
5 cups of Basmati rice
5 medium-sized brown onions
10 cups of boiling water (although not all at once)
1-3 tablespoons of freshly ground whole spices (garam masala). You can also buy this already ground if it’s easier.
