Blogging Marathon# 58: Week 1/ Day 3
Theme: Bring on your Rice
Dish: Jollof Brown Rice
Recipe uses brown rice instead of white and is baked instead of cooking on the stove. I’ve never baked brown rice before and was skeptical to follow the recipe. But I wanted to try it because when brown rice is boiled with more wet ingredients like the tomato paste, it tends to become mushy and cook unevenly. So to prevent that this dish is baked for a firmer, evenly cooked grains.
Original recipe used thyme but I added some ground coriander and fresh cilantro to give the dish an Indian touch. Serve with some tofu or paneer curry or raita for a complete meal.
