Turmeric Basmati Rice

Yellow turmeric rice is the perfect companion to all curry dishes! I also like to serve it with regular chicken, meat and fish dishes to add new colour and flavour to our table.




  • 2 cup basmati rice - أرز بسمتي
  • 4 cup boiling water - ماء ساخن
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric - كركم
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt - ملح
  • 1 large bay leaf - ورق لاورا
  • 3 pod cardamom - حبهان

Step by step

  1. In a sieve, rinse the rice with cold water.
  2. Next, add the rice, 4 cups of boiling water (from the kettle), the salt, turmeric, cardamoms and bay leave in a pot.
  3. Bring the rice to the boil (uncovered), then reduce the heat and cover.
  4. Allow the rice to cook for 10 minutes on a low heat until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked.
  5. Remove the cardamom pods and the bay leaf and use a fork to fluff it up.
