Coconut Turmeric Rice with Goji Berries and Cilantro

18 Oct

Came up with this last night trying to cook something to bring to Feast of Words.

2 tablespooon coconut oil

1 onion grated

1 chopped garlic clove

turmeric

cinnamon

paprika

cayenne

salt

1 cup washed jasmine rice (but next time I’m trying it with basmati, got too clumpy)

1 cup goji berries

chopped cilantro

Saute the onions and garlic in the oil, when they are golden add the spices and cook the spices until they make a paste. Add the rice and stir it until rice is all covered with yellow paste. Add water to cook rice and when rice is almost cooked add berries and stir. Add chopped cilantro to the mix only when is about to be served. Note to self: next time I might add coconut flakes.
