CARAMELISED MEAT ROAST RICE


This rice recipe is an innovation by me. The amusing part was …only after a day I was able to decide the

title to this dish.

It’s not like blowing my own trumpet, the only thing I could say about this recipe is that it was an excellent

dish, served for a Sunday lunch.

You have to cook the rice in coconut milk with mint separately, and the roasting of the meat with lots of

onions separately. Then pour the curry in the centre of the rice and allow a little heat (optional)for just

2-3 minutes and serve.A salad accompanied is good to serve with.

I used 2 pressure cookers to cook the rice and the meat.Chicken,mutton or any meat can be used to

make this rice.

If you are using chicken,i would suggest to partially fry and then add to the caramelised onions.

Do try this recipe and post in your comments and how you liked it.
