Pistachio Pilaf Recipe

Pistachio Pilaf Recipes

Ingredients :

3 onions

4 tbsp olive oil

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 inch piece fresh root ginger, grated

1 green chili, chopped

2 carrots, coarsely grated

1 cup basmati rice, rinsed

1/4 tsp saffron strands, crushed

2 cups stock

2 inch cinnamon stick

1 tsp ground coriander

salt and ground black pepper

1/4 cup fresh pistachios

1lb fresh leaf spinach

1 tsp garam masala

tomato salad, to serve

Method :

Roughly chop two of the onions. Heat half of the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion with half the garlic, the ginger and the chili for 5 minutes until softened. Mix in the carrots and rice, cook for 1 more minute and then add the saffron, stock, cinnamon and coriander. Season well. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes without lifting the lid.

Remove from the heat and leave to stand, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add the pistachios, mixing them in with a fork. Remove the cinnamon stick and keep the rice warm. Thinly slice the third onion and fry in the remaining oil for about 3 minutes. Stir in the spinach. Cover and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the garam masala powder. Cook until just tender, then drain and roughly chop the spinach. Spoon the spinach round the edge of a round serving dish and pile the Pilaf in the centre. Serve immediately with a tomato salad.

Serves 4

Saffron and ginger are traditional rice spices and delicious when mixed with fresh pistachios.
