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.

Rice cakes with vegetables

Last weekend, while my children were sleeping in the afternoon, I wanted to bake something sweet. But I was angry at my self, because I didn’t know what can I bake. So I started to browse in my computer looking for something suitable. And I saw these cakes. I decided to make them. I know, that they’re not sweet, but I had everything they needed in my fridge. I just didn’t make baskets out of rice, just did two layer cakes. And they tasted very good. At first I was afraid that my hubby will miss meat in them, but I was wrong 🙂

Chilli stew with rice

My hubby likes hot dishes, so one day I decided to indulge him. After eating this dish he was very happy and with the smile in his face 🙂 He even wasn’t disturbed that in this stew was corn, that he really doesn’t like. Tomatoes brought the right freshness. I think that this dish is really very good balanced.

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.

Chicken and rice salads with curry

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

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.
