Pillaf from Rustam


Author: Aušra

Date:

This is my favourite pillaf recipe. After I found it I don’t seek any new anymore. I like it because it doesn’t use tomato sauce or ketchup, because real tomatoes are used. But if you like ketchup, you can use it anyway. Sometimes I adapt recipe for my hubby and add only small carrot, sometimes I don’t add bell pepper at all. But sometimes I do everything by recipe, because I think proportions given are just perfect.

Pillaf from Rustam

Time needed:

  • Cut meat in big chunks (2×2 cm). Slice carrot thinly. Onion, bell pepper and tomatoes chop into cubes.
  • Pour oil in a stewpot so much that oil covered all bottom of the pot. Put pot on a high heat and when oil will be so hot that smoke starts, add meat and fry from both sides.

  • Then add tomatoes and stew for 3-5 minutes.
  • Then add bell pepper and stew for 3-5 minutes.

  • Take pot off the heat and mix pillaf with a spoon. Enjoy!

Chicken and rice stew with chanterelles

At first glance it seems that it is simple pilaf with chicken. But lemon and hot chilli sauce gives spicy taste to the dish. I prepared it already two times: first – without mushrooms, because my hubby was at home, the second – with mushrooms, because I was all alone 🙂 Both times it was delicious. Don’t know about other kids, by mine don’t like spicy dishes, so I didn’t even asked to taste 🙂

Stuffed cucumbers

Super easy and quick appetizer, if you have some boiled rice leftovers. Even children could prepare it. But also it’s tasty and with freshness 🙂

Risi e bisi

It is classic Venice rice dish. Usually it is served with more liquid than in risotto. And the most important – it is really easy and quick. We made it a few times, and always family is delighted.

Kids rice soup with green peas

My kids are tired of eating salads 🙂 so I decided to prepare them soup – simple, only with a few ingredients as kids like this. Also I had some fresh peas in a fridge, and for more satiety I added small turkey meatballs, but they are really optional.

Rice bake with curd

Lately my family doesn”t want any bakes. But this recipe was the only one that I liked and wanted to prepare for the Rice week. I said that I”m gonna make it you like it or not 🙂 And only when I saw how my family was eating this bake I remembered that rice and curd are the most favourite ingredients so this bake had to be a hit from the beginning. And one more point for this bake – it”s just slightly sweet. That”s why I heard compliment from my hubby. He said that this bake is probably the best that he ever ate 🙂 So you look at the last piece of bake 🙂 and it disappeared very quickly after I did some shots.
