Mushroom Pilau Rice

As promised yesterday, here is my recipe for Mushroom Pilau Rice to accompany my Kinda Tikka Masala…

What You Need

Basmati Rice

Mushrooms – sliced

Onion – sliced

Cinnamon Stick

Cardamom Pods


Vegetable Stock Cube


Butter (You can use Ghee if you like, but I don’t like the taste so much)


How You Do It

Heat a lump of butter in the saucepan and fry the onion and mushrooms, giving them some colour.

Add the rice, cardamom pods and cloves and stir it around for a minute until everything is coated in the butter and mixed together.

Pour over the water (sufficient for the amount of rice you’re making), chuck in the stock cube and cinnamon stick and bring it to the boil, stirring in the stock cube so it dissolves.

Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the water has evaporated.  (Be careful not to add too much water or the rice will be soggy and sticky!)






And there you have it!  Delicious, flavoursome Mushroom Pilau Rice to accompany your Kinda Tikka Masala.
