BM# 34: Week 4/ Day 3
Theme: Cooking from Sapana‘s blog
Dish: Semya Pulao (Vermicelli Pilaf)
It has been a busy day and I’m very late for the 3rd day post for BM# 34. I was busy prepping for the Thanksgiving party and also finishing up the necessary shopping. Weather was lousy today, gloomy, cold and rainy — totally uninspiring and dull.
I was planning to make one of Sapana’s Chole recipe. I had already soaked the chickpeas, but by the time we came back from shopping, we were starving and I didn’t have time to cook the beans and make the curry. Instead I made this quick to make Seviyan Pulao.
I make semya pulao often, but the addition of tomato, garlic masala paste is new and added lot of flavor to the pulao. Also using carom seeds in tempering is a different element. It tasted great and we had a filling lunch.
