The basmati rice with vegetables it’s a Thai recipe which I revisited to make it easy and fast. It is a very good single dish!
How I miss Asia! I believe it is among the most fascinating and magical continents. Just land in one of the many Asian places and you are instantly catapulted into a new reality. I love everything about Asia: the people, the mysticism, the scents, the culture and the food. In the past years in which I have, fortunately, traveled a lot I have been able to visit some very unique places including the Thailand. Bangkok, for example, has remained in my heart and I just need to close my eyes to be able to travel through memories and be there with my mind, among those streets so full of folklore and life.
Not to mention the beaches of the Thai islands: such a sea is impossible to forget! It is difficult for Thailand not to forcefully enter the hearts of visitors and I can say with certainty, years later, that I have let it enter with all its magic because the heart is not commanded…
In these days, taken by nostalgia (is it that summer is imminent?), I leafed through the album of Thai memories and I felt like eating something typical. There Asian cuisine, contrary to what one might think, it is rich in taste, aromas and flavors. In Thailand I tried everything and there was nothing that did not satisfy me. In those days of staying in Koh Samui I was crazy about the basmati rice with vegetables. It is a very simple but not trivial typical dish.
To make it affordable for everyone, I revisited it using our vegetables, turmeric, to give it that ethnic soul and excellent basmati rice that came straight from me Koro. It’s a basmati rice particularly aromatic and coming from 100% organic agriculture. Did you know that in the Hindi language the word “basmati” means “fragrance”? Well, there is a reason: it’s delicious! If you too are curious to try it out and bring an oriental note into your home, I leave you my ANNARITAKORO discount code to take advantage of it in shop of Koro. Because there is nothing like the east… 😉
- You can prepare the vegetables in advance, even the day before and add them to the rice at the moment of use.
- Have fun changing the type of vegetable to the one you prefer. It will always be delicious!
- If you don’t like turmeric you can omit it or replace it with saffron.
