Our wood fired pilaf rice is an ideal side dish to any of our wood fired curries or casseroles! If you’re a vegetarian, you can swap out the chicken stock for vegetable stock.
- 250g long grain rice
- 500ml chicken stock
- 30g butter
- 1 red onion, finely diced
- 2 crushed garlic cloves
- 2 sprigs of thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- 1tsp turmeric (this is optional but it makes a great colour!!)
- Salt & pepper
To start, fire up your wood fired oven to its optimum temperature and allow to cool to around 200-210°C.
In a high heat casserole dish, melt your butter at the front of your wood fired oven.
Then, add in your onion, garlic, thyme, bay leaf and salt and pepper. Allow to sweat gently for around 4 minutes.
Next, add your rice and stir well to ensure the grains are evenly coated in the butter.
Cover with the hot stock, place a lid over your pan and cook in your wood fired oven for around 16 minutes. Make sure you serve your pilaf rice hot with a fragrant curry. Yum!
