I also sauteed a half onion (chopped) and threw that in with a dab of chili garlic sauce for just a bit of zing. Add chicken chunks and serve with some green stuff and a couple of raw red pepper spears and chopped cilantro. BTW, those red peppers that I get at No Frills are a great substitute for fresh tomatoes. A light delight!

    Oh my goodness! That looks Ah-mazing!

    Gosh, everyone's meals for yesterday sound outstanding!!! For us it was takeout Friday so I had schnitzel, spaetzle, sauerkraut, and sausage - yum.
    mcminsen - YAY on the chicken bones! I hadn't found any this year, and by pure chance, a sister of mine sent over a package last week! Your meal looks amazing, as usual!
    So who can explain to me about basmati rice (yes, I know how to google...)? I know people have it, as well as jasmine rice -- so just how different of a taste is it from regular white rice, and should I be really daring and actually buy it to try it? I do like rice a lot, but don't make it often because my husband isn't a fan (has to drown it in some sort of sauce/gravy).

    I buy Basmati rice in the bulk section of Save On Foods. It's costs more than regular rice but it's still cheap. Maybe you could buy just a little bag and try it. I'm used to a lot of Asian and East Indian food here in Vancouver and when it's cooking the apartment is filled with the fragrance, which I love.

    I suppose we all have our methods for cooking rice. Mine is to use 1/3 cup Basmati rice, 1 cup water, a dab of butter, salt to taste, and a lime leaf. I simmer the rice until it's cratered and then turn the heat down to minimum and cover it and let it have 20-30 minutes to finish.

    The lime leaves I pick up in Chinatown. A bag of fresh leaves is usually a dollar or two and I put them in the freezer and it lasts about a year. You can even use the stems to add a bit of flavour. Dried lime leaves would be okay, too.

    If DH and DS aren't used to Asian cooking and flavours, let alone rice, then I suggest reverse psychology. Make a little batch for yourself but don't serve it to them. They might turn up their nose at it OR they might be curious and want to try it. It does hit the nose and the palette a little differently but once you decide you like it then it can be a favourite!

    Thanks mcminsen - it's on sale this week at Co-op, so I'm going to try some. Both basmati and jasmine are the same price for 900g, so I'll go with the basmati since I hear people on here mention it the most.
    That said, I'm hurtin' tonight, so no cooking. It's not delivery, it's Delissio!!!
