I wanted a rice dish to go with my Mughal gosht dopiaza and saag paneer. Looking for Mughal rice dishes, the ones I found all seemed to be modern recipes that included tomatoes. Tomatoes would have been an uncommon ingredient in India in the 1500’s. Picking ingredients from several recipes, I created my own pulao, using spices that would have been common in the 16th Century Mughal Empire.

Eilene has settled into a routine of a video night on Thursday. Three to five of her friends will show up to watch the Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones or whatever they are into that week. I, of course, am delegated to feed the masses. It is a struggle to think, “What will I feed several starving teenagers this week.”

Usually when I make Greek lamb I make potatoes. In fact, it is a bit of a rut. To break the mold, I looked for a Greek rice side dish. Finding one that was close on Food.com, I adapted it to my personal style. Jan doesn’t like white rice, so I switched to brown. For my family there are never enough onions. And who can make a Greek dish without garlic and pepper? Most of the other dishes would be heavy on the herbs, so just a little parsley as an accent in flavor and color.
