Mushroom and Pea Pulao

by Helene Dsouza on November 24, 2013

Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying a peaceful weekend after a busy week. We have been getting ready for the Tourist season and that’s one excuse for my prolonged repeated absence. I definitely have some surprises coming up in the next weeks and months, so you will be compensated for the wait with some great changes here. In the mean time today I got together with my friend Lizzy from Bizzy Lizzy’s good things.

Lizzy is sharing my mushroom and pea pulao on her gorgeous page after having invited me on her blog. Bizzy Lizzy’s good things is a collection of food related essays and reminiscences in addition to mouth watering recipes and pictures from Lizzy’s kitchen in Australia. The talented food writer is known as a busy lady but lately my friend hasn’t been feeling too well so naturally I was honored when Lizzy asked me to guest post to help her out.

I came across Lizzy’s food paradise via the talent scouting Maureen from the Orgasmic Chef. Maureen even had a chance to get hold of the buzzy Lizzy and interviewed her at Food Writer friday, which you can read here.

Damn, how do you get the rice so fluffy! Ok, of course I’ll check out the recipe (I hope you will share some tips there…) – rice is my nemesis. Rare is the time that I’m able to do perfectly cooked rice!

Hi Charles! You know my rice is often sticky because I love sticky rice but my husband of course sees it as a sin so I try to not over cook the rice. Also another tip is to drain the rice properly, oh and use quality rice. Of course it depends too which rice type you cook. A tip that I learned on for sushi rice is to wash the rice a couple of times until all the hazy starch has come out. The same principe can be applied on other peeled rice types and it helps to fight the sticking. When making the Pulao you add some kind of fats which in turn will keep your rice dish easily fluffy. :)
