Helpful hints

  • Compliment this dish with a cucumber salad (sliced cucumbers, thin sliced onion, white vinegar, black pepper and sugar or sweetener).
  • Spice substitute for garam masala: Combine 1/2 teaspoon cardamom, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon coriander and 1/4 teaspoon cloves.
  • If you have diabetes you may need to reduce the rice portion if carbohydrate content is too high.
