How to cook tasty pilau for your husband


Pilau masala

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon black pepper

¼ teaspoon ground cloves


¼ cup vegetable oil(60 mL)

2 medium red onions, thinly sliced

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons ginger, minced

1 serrano chile, finely chopped

1 tablespoon pilau masala

2 beef stock cubes

1 cinnamon stick

¼ cup fresh cilantro(10 g), roughly chopped

1 lb beef sirloin(455 g), cubed

3 roma tomatoes, diced

1 lb potato(455 g), waxy, peeled and cut into 1 inch (2 cm) chunks

4 cups water(960 mL)

2 cups basmati rice(400 g)

To make the pilau masala, combine the cumin, paprika, cardamom, black pepper, and cloves in a medium bowl. Place aside.

Over medium-high heat, heat a big saucepan. Sauté the red onion in the oil for 10-15 minutes, or until dark brown.

Garlic, ginger, serrano chile, pilau masala, beef stock cubes, cinnamon stick, and cilantro are added to the pot. Cook until aromatic, about 1-2 minutes.

Cook until the steak is browned, about 8 minutes.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes have lost their liquid, about 4-5 minutes.

Combine the potatoes and water in a mixing bowl. Cook for 10 minutes after bringing to a boil.

Stir in the rice and cover. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for another 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid has evaporated.

Serve while hot and enjoy.
