Rice Cooker Turmeric Rice Pilaf Recipe
Side Dish  Rice  Indian  
2 cups basmati rice (or whatever you have)
1 tbsp oil of choice (butter or ghee would be super yummy)
2 large shallots, chopped (or other onion)
2 1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. turmeric
Dash of Salt
1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas (DH Is a pea addict)
Rinse your water until it goes clear and drain. Start your rice cooker
and add your oil in the dry pan. Close lid and let it heat. Add the
shallots and close the lid, restarting rice cooker. When shallots are
translucent, add the rice, stir it in and let the rice get heated with
the oil. Some varieties of rice will turn a little translucent. Add
your turmeric, water and salt and peas and stir. Restart your rice
cooker and let it cook until it turns itself off.

If you want fluffier peas you can add frozen peas after the machine
clicks over to warm. Stir them in, shut the lid again and let them be
on warm until the peas are warm throughout.

This recipe isn’t fancy but it was tasty and more fun than plain rice
with a hearty side dish o’ lentil loaf!
