Pilau rice
« on: December 22, 2015, 10:05 PM »
Was in my local t/a the other night and was looking through into the kitchen watching them make my pilau rice,firstly the chef put about a tablespoon of either veg oil or possibly melted ghee into a wok he then added a few whole spices and worked them into the oil,after a couple of minutes he removed the spice using his chef spoon and tipped a ready cooked portion of coloured boiled rice into the pan and stirred it around for a couple of minutes,pinch of salt another stir and into the container,nice quick and easy method.

Must be a posh joint. Most of them will just cook it in bulk in a big pot then portion into takeaway tubs to be whacked into the microwave when an order comes in.

Thanks for posting this, emin-j. I imagine the rice will be really flavoursome with the fresh injection of the spiced oil. I'll be giving this a go myself for my next curry. :)
