Finished 2018 on a glad note; began 2019 on a more joyful one.
Amelia and I have recently moved back to Kuwait and we couldn’t be more joyful to be with Darling Abbu. In any case, what accompanies this bliss is RESPONSIBILITY. I have an entire house to deal with and two individuals to feed. Get up each morning, open the refrigerator, and wonder……” what do I cook today?” and this never ends. Trust me, its the most noticeably awful inclination on the planet. Presently I understand what mum implied when she generally said: “I don’t know what to feed you any longer” (Plus, me being a fussy eater, aggravated it for her- uh oh).
Anyway, setting each one of those considerations aside, I’ve decided I’m going to begin off this year on a solid note and spotlight on keeping myself and the little brat and the greater brat fit. So today for lunch I made one of Amelia’s most loved rice and something that she eats regularly. Its a one pot rice that incorporate chicken, vegetables or both. This is one way I know I don’t suck as a mother and am giving my baby boo the supplements she needs.
This is a great lunch idea/ tiffin idea for us adults too.
1/2 cup Basmati rice
1 small Onion sliced
1/2 Tomato sliced
1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
1/2 Chicken cube
1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
Tiny bits of Chicken
Salt and Pepper to taste
*The quantity of ingredients mentioned above is just enough to feed a toddler or two.
*You can add spinach or potato instead of chicken or with the chicken.
*For 1/2 cup Basmati Rice, add 1 1/4 cup of water.
In a Nonstick pot, heat about 1-2 tbsp of ghee. Add onions and saute till brown. Next, add ginger garlic paste and saute well. To this, add tomatoes and cook on low flame, till well cooked and mushy. At this point add a little salt and pepper.
Add the chicken stock cube and turmeric powder and combine. Add chicken and cook well. Finally add rice, combine with the masala and add water and salt. Cover with lid, and cook on low flame till all the water has been absorbed and the rice has cooked well.
Serve with raita or just the way it is.
