I have no idea where this recipe came from – or what culture it represents or anything. It may be that I just had a lot of cashews to use up. Anyway, my note was “yum” so that’s a good sign.
2 cups rice, rinsed (we use Basmati)
2 tsp kosher salt
3 7/8 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
3/4 cup chopped cashews
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 tsp chopped jalapeno pepper, or 1 chipotle pepper, chopped
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 1/2 cup yoghurt
1 tsp salt
Make rice with water and 2 tsp salt.
In a frying pan, saute onion and belle pepper. Add mustard seeds and ginger and cook for a couple of minutes. The add nuts and Jalapeno or chipotle pepper. Cook for a couple more minutes and remove from heat.
Gently blend in the rice, and the then the yoghurt.
