Sometimes the best recipes happen by accident. Ever notice that? That’s how the storty of Sweet Milaya Rice begins. Recently, I have been busy in the kitchen testing recipes ideas for my upcoming cookbook.
It all started when I was working on perfecting my Russian Stuffed Pepper recipe. Distracted by my thoughts I accidentally shredded what looked like a lifetime supply of carrots. Since I sort of dispise wasting ingredients, I decided to get creative. With a little extra rice made from the pepper recipe, I decided to play off of the flavors of the stuffed pepper dish and see what I could come up with by incorporating a few other ingredients in my pantry.
Shazaam! A new recipe was born, and it’s probably one of my current favorites. The unexpected taste that came from a combination of sweet raisins and carrots paired with sauteed onions and a lightly nutty Basmati rice was the prefect marriage of flavors. Serve it with the Russian Stuffed Peppers and it’s a winning combination. Sometimes, I’m happy accidents happen. At least in the kitchen.
