classic twisted


E
verybody eats some form of chicken and rice and you know it. I think even vegans and vegetarians eat something called 'fakin' and rice to imitate chicken -n- rice. So it should come as no surprise to you that I too eat chicken and rice. I eat chicken and rice in so many ways I dont have time to tell you and you dont have time to hear.



A favorite way to make chicken and rice round here is with curry and that too has all its variants, sometimes its butter chicken some times its green curry, I will do a tandoori style, the list and its myriad of other lists is endless and this is only the curry list!



This is red chile, coconut curry with chicken tenders over basmati rice. Sweet, spicy, aromatic and delicious.

harmony: thanks - it was killer!

micky-t: a true favorite....

Creative Mish said...

There is no Fakin in my book!

This looks so good. Why am I scared to make Indian food? I love it... I guess I just need to be brave. My Handyman cooks a couple of Indian dishes but I never have.

Dana said...

Hmmm ... my chicken and rice never looks that yummy!

Cynthia said...

Like you, I eat so many different combinations of chicken and rice. I find that they are very easy and fast to cook.

Marjie said...

I made poached chicken last night, and cooked the rice in the resultant broth, and the poor dog had virtually no leftovers. Everyone loves chicken and rice, except, of course, my picky eater (or so he says).

Bina said...

I have never said this about food before. But that is just beautiful.

I think I'm in love.

buffalodick said...

Many cultures and cuisines do indeed have versions of this...Yours looked great!

lisaiscooking said...

That's a great looking chicken and rice. I usually go more in the arroz con pollo direction, but now I'll being thinking curry.

Stacey Snacks said...

when I first opened up the post, I thought it was a giant coconut macaroon!

doggybloggy said...

bina: in love with chicken?

buffD: yup everybody eats it in one form or another...

lisaiscooking: thats the only way I had it growing up in New Mexico

stacey: its amazing what you can do with a scallion....

TavoLini said...

Your presentation is top notch!!

As a veggie, I do more tofu and rice and the ever present beans and rice ;)

Tavo, on the other hand, will tear up some chicken and rice!

Belle said...

Chicken and rice. A staple in our family. Curry - the national dish of Britain. That decorative greenery on the top is too clever. I've tried - I just can't do it.

Jason said...

The last time I was in Malaysia I really really wanted some Devil's Curry (Curry Debal, if you're Portuguese). Unfortunately, I got cheated and the restaurant who swore they had it on the menu, insted brought be some weak curry with chicken from a street vendor instead.

Anyway, I hear it's awesome and really spicy.

doggybloggy said...

tavolini: lots of beans and rice around here too...and tofu - we eat it all

belle: cut a scallion on the angle - insert one into the other - voila an "X" is born

jason: I'll have to remember that the 'next time' I go to malaysia

Anette said...

The rice is so fluffy it almost lifts from the plate, the chicken is of course nosedrippingly goodlooking! Beth, I knew it!

Leela said...

Another delicious post focusing on rice and curry -- you know how to make this Asian girl happy! I've learned not to visit your blog late at night, because it makes me want to raid the fridge. :)

Patty Gironda said...

yummy! I'm making chicken and dumplings-my husband said he wouldn't put it on rice!!

Patty Gironda said...

correction-he wouldn't mind if I put it on rice!

sorry-I'm still sick!!

doggybloggy said...

anette: spicy stuff has substituted for soups for me lately

leela: yesssss, I knew I would get to you eventually

patty: you are sick too...bummer - hopefully the dumplings will help

Elyse said...

Mmm, red chile coconut curry sounds so delicious. Man, you're right about chicken and rice. I eat it in so many forms. I love it! Ultimate comfort food, and a perfect weeknight meal to boot!

LK- Healthy Delicious said...

I love curry! I actually rarely eat rice unless its with a curry... its so good for sopping up that sauce!

Laurie said...

Lovely, lovely! I want some now. That's the problem with staying up too late looking at food blogs - they make you hungry.

It was nice catching up on what you've been doing. We put fried eggs on everything! And I didn't steal my kids' computer when my laptop crashed either. Even though I wanted to - very, very badly...

Anndi said...

I'm salivating here... wow!

SoCal Pastry Chef said...

Hmmm, I love chicken and rice (and curry also). We have a local Indian restaurant that we order from at least once a month, and curry's always on the order.

Your "twist" looks amazing... and delicious.

Donna said...

laurie: thanks for catching up - I too did some catching up at your blog

anndi: dont drool on the keyboard

socal: we have two indian neighborhoods with gads of restaurants and grocery stores...I crave it constantly

donna: if you really want the recipe I will e mail it to you...really

TK: I could never stop needing you....ever.

monica said...

hm, you know a lifetime ago - in 1989 - I worked at a restaurant in Switzerland and there was a dish called Riz Casimir, and it looked pretty much like your dish... last year I had the opportunity to visit the same restaurant again and Riz Casimir was still on the menu!! :o) rice and chicken, always a winner with me..

Dawn said...
