Yellow Rice

If you know me, you will know that I am always looking for rice variations to serve with meat or a curry. This Yellow Rice inspiration is from this restaurant called Chicken Tikka in Kuwait. Along with their charcoal grilled chicken they also serve a yellow rice as an option that you can choose instead of the deep fried oil dripping flat bread / roti type thing they serve the meat with … I made some salmon recently, and usually for salmon I have pita bread and a salad but it’s starting to get colder here in Wellington, New Zealand and I wanted lunch to be warm … so this rice recipe came into the picture. It went along with a beautiful piece of salmon, and veggies roasted in the oven with a spicy spice mix. YUM!

  3. Let it cook on medium low heat for about 30 seconds. Add the rice and give the spices and rice together a good mix.
