Salaams! My name is Sidra and I welcome you to my blog. I am a British Pakistani Muslim, a teacher and a writer. This space is an amazing way to communicate with you guys on what I’ve been up to lately. It is a place for musings and thoughts in general. I am so grateful for your presence on my journey. I hope my words will provoke deep reflection and ultimately inspire you to make the best of your life…Look out for my new book, ‘Finding Peace Through Prayer and Love’ published by Beacon Books out soon inshaAllah!
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.
