Hi there…Here is the recipe…
Serves 4 – 6
45ml Spar sunflower oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
5ml cumin seeds
15ml crushed garlic
15ml red chilli powder
2 tomatoes, skinned and chopped
5ml ground cumin
5ml ground coriander
5ml garam masala
Salt to season
250ml frozen peas
1 x 400g tinned lentils, drained
60ml fresh cream
1000ml cooked Spar basmati rice
5ml egg yellow food colouring
125ml boiling water
Coriander to garnish
Heat oil in a pot and add the cinnamon stick and bay leaf.
When the spices are fragrant, add the cumin seeds and saute until they begin to splutter.
Add the onion and salt.
Saute the onion until golden brown.
Add the crushed garlic and saute until fragrant.
Add the red chilli powder and stir for a few seconds before adding the chopped tomatoes.
Add the ground cumin, coriander, garam masala and turmeric.
Stir in the peas and saute and mix gently.
Pour the fresh cream over and sprinkle half the lentils over the peas.
Layer the basmati rice over the lentils and then sprinkle the remaining lentils over.
Slice the butter into little blocks and place over the rice.
Drizzle the egg yellow over the rice and pour the boiling water over.
Cover with a tight fitting lid and lower the heat.
Steam on the lowest heat setting until the rice has heated through and the excess moisture has evaporated.
Garnish with fresh coriander.
Add par cooked carrots and potatoes to this recipe.
Low fat yoghurt can be used instead of fresh cream.
Cold rice works best to prevent the pilau from becoming sticky.
