Mushroom And Basil Rice, this is another easy rice that can be put together in no time. The main and important ingredient here is the basil leaves, the leaves along with the chopped garlic gives all the flavor to this simple rice. I have just added a few sliced mushrooms to the rice, it goes well with the basil, just serve it with some chips and raitha for a delicious meal..
Need To Have
- Cooked Rice - 3 cups
- Button Mushrooms - 5 or 6, sliced
- Tomato - 1 medium, chopped
- Chopped Garlic - 1 teaspoon
- Cashews - 5, broken into pieces
- Red Chilly Flakes - 3/4 teaspoon
- Basil Leaves - 1/2 to 3/4 cup
Heat some oil, add the chopped garlic and cashew pieces and saute it for a minute or two till the garlic and cashews turn golden. Then add the chopped tomato and saute till it breaks down, then add the sliced mushrooms.
Saute the mushrooms till it's cooked ( should take about 2 to 3 minutes ), then add the chilly flakes, salt and basil leaves and mix for another minute. Finally add the cooked and cooled rice, mix it well, garnish with more basil leaves and serve.
I usually cook quinoa and rice together ( 1 cup rice and 1/2 cup quinoa ), I have used that here, but you can make it with only rice.
