Welcome back to FixMyReceipe.com. I am Chef Billy Parisi and our next recipe goes to Katie of Denver, Colorado. She submitted a recipe to us for an err basmati rice, kind of complain that something is just missing, it’s just not quite there.
Don’t worry Katie. That’s why you wrote us. We are going to take care of this for you. First thing we want to do is get our butter melting in this pot, alright. Our butter has melted our pan is nice and hot. First thing we are going to do is add a sweet onion that’s nice and chopped; throw away that old yellow one and this is going to add a lot of flavor. It takes about 6 to 7 minutes to carnalize or to make these onions nice and tender. Now we are going to add in our basmati rice, our water, and we are going to bring it to boil and cover it but first before you add the rice be sure to wash it off, kind of gets rid of all that starchiness we don’t want jasmine sticky rice, we want basmati wild rice.
Katie, you can see our water has started to boil, lets put a cover on it, turn it on low heat, let it stay for about 15 minutes. Katie, while our rice is cooking lets go ahead and cut out some herbs. Katie, after we uncovered on low heat for 15 minutes, we just want to let it stand, and so let it cool off and so we are going to turn off the heat and let is sit for 10 minutes. Alright Katie, our rice is done. This is what it should look like. Alright Katie, we are simply going to add it to our bowl and put in all ingredients.
And first we are going to is add these toasted walnuts, to toast walnuts really 6 or 7 minutes on 350 degrees in the oven, it’s all you need to do. Some dill there we chopped up, Italian parsley, fresh tarragon and another kick in a dish in those walnuts some sun-dried cherries. Add salt and pepper of course.
Awesome flavors in there Katie, you get there fresh herbs and in addition you get little bit of sweetness from those sun-dried cherries, and those walnuts are not bad either, I will tell you why. Say it’s summer time 90 degrees, 95 degrees and you want something cool, add a little bit of balsamic vinaigrette to it and chill it and either cool it in the sense like a cool salad, very, very good.
If you don’t have a recipe for balsamic vinaigrette, check out our videos. We have one under that it’s really simple and really tasty. Katie, thank you so very much for writing and we really appreciate it. I know this rice is going to be awesome. Try with some pork or may be some fresh fish and I think you are going to be very pleased with our final product. Be sure to come back tomorrow and see our new feature fix of the day.
