Rice recipes with aromatic herbs
September 08, 2009

Basmati riceThe secret of this recipe is the rice: use a basmati rice. It's an aromatic rice with long grains, that will absorbe the flavour of all the ingredients.

For the chili lovers: for this recipe I used Peter Pepper (the 3 mild green chilies in the ingredient list) and Thai Dragon (the red hot one).
