Pachi’s Spanish Rice with Chicken

Spanish Rice

Spanish Rice

My mother-in-law, who is from Spain, taught me how to make this rice.  The recipe has been passed down from generation to generation without ever being written down.  I did my best to write it in a an easy to use recipe.  Most of the measurements are approximate: just put some in, taste it, and add more if you think it will taste better.  This is a large recipe that can of course be cut in half or further reduced.  You can also play around with it a bit by throwing different things in (different kinds of meat, other vegetables) to make it more suited to your tastes or to use up some things you have on hand. Happy cooking!  Continue reading

Chicken Coconut Kurma

I love Indian food and have been trying to convince Matt to like it as well. I had been searching for a good Tikka Masala recipe for a long time. A co-worker of mine gave me an amazing recipe. So, now I’ve conquered the Tikka Masala and convinced Matt he likes it too, I decided to branch out and find more delicious Indian food recipes to experiment with. I ran across this recipe from a website of a woman I met at a football game brunch. She and her three sisters started a food blog which became popular enough that they have a cookbook that just came out.

This recipe for Chicken Coconut Kurma was a delicious choice. So good that I didn’t want to stop eating it. I did make a few alterations to the recipe. If you use light coconut milk like I did, reduce the amount of water to ¼ cup. Chopped onions would also be a good addition with the garlic and ginger. I used chicken thighs to make it a little more authentic with a little tenderer finished product.  Go to this website to get the recipe. Enjoy!
