Sometimes the best recipes happen by accident. That’s how the story of Sweet
Milaya Rice begins. I was working on perfecting my Russian Stuffed Pepper recipe and distracted. I accidentally shredded what looked like a lifetime supply of carrots. Since I prefer not to waste ingredients, I got creative. Using a little extra rice from the pepper dish, I incorporated a few ingredients from my pantry and SHAZAM, a new recipe was born. The unexpected flavors of sweet raisins and carrots paired with sauteed onions and a lightly nutty Basmati rice were the perfect marriage of flavors. I served it with the Russian Stuffed Peppers and
it was delightful.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook
