So my tame little domestic goddess has been at it again. Lee's been putting Nisha Katona's new book Pimp My Rice through its paces. Here's her review with some lovely pictures of what she made.
Having visited Mowgli's new site in the Manchester Corn Exchange, I was already a big fan of Nisha Katona, and so jumped at the opportunity to give her recipe book 'Pimp my Rice' a try.
My favourite part of this book is the first few pages where she gives general advice on cooking and preparation methods. I have great form for undercooking or burning rice so this is a huge help.
The book is then helpfully broken down into five food types; breakfasts, lunch and snacks, mains, sides and puddings. There is an excellent selection of dishes in each section, and after much deliberation I chose to start with a recipe that combines two of my favourite things...gin and fish!
That's right, Gin and Tonic Coriander Salmon. The recipe was clear and easy to follow, with delicious results. It's also worth noting that the rice cooking method in this recipe is the best ever and I have used it for all rice based dishes I have made since then.
This recipe book is great fun, and I can't wait to try more from it. This weekend is going to be dedicated to the pudding section, bring on the spiced rice pudding!
Disclaimer: We were sent a copy of this book to review. This was actually before our trips to Mowgli, which just sharpened our collective appetites further.
