Whole 30 Biryani

Whole 30 Biryani

This recipe has 3 components that are prepared separately and come together in the end in layers. It looks like a long process but I swear it is not. Took me about 45 min and that included processing the cauliflower. It does use 3 pans but to me it is worth it for this recipe.

Cauliflower rice layer
2 bags Cauliflower Rice (or 1 medium cauliflower riced in the food processor)
1 tbsp Ghee
1 Bay Leaf
1 Cardamom whole (optional)
1″ Cinnamon Stick
Salt
1.       Heat ghee in a pan and add bayleaf, cardamom, and cinnamon stick. Saute for 1 minute on medium and then add cauliflower rice.
2.       Saute cauliflower rice for 2 min.
3.       Add salt and stir for another couple minutes or so. Turn off heat. It will cook again in the last step for 5 min so keep that in mind for the doneness.

Vegetable layer
1 tsp Ghee
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 Cup chopped vegetables (I used orange peppers and broccoli)
1 Medium Onion sliced
2 Large Tomatoes, chopped
2-3 garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp cumin powder  (You can grind whole seeds in a dedicated coffee grinder)
1 tbsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Garam Masala powder
Salt to taste
Chopped Cilantro for garnish
1.       Heat ghee and crackle cumin seeds. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add onions and saute until translucent. Now add chopped tomatoes and saute until they get soft.
2.        At this point, add the vegetables. Add the spices - turmeric, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala and salt. Stir and cover with lid and cook until the vegetables are done. Turn off heat and put aside.

Meat layer
Ground turkey 1 lb (you can use other ground meat)
Ghee 1 tbsp
1 Bay Leaf
½ tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tbsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Garam Masala powder
Salt
1.       Heat ghee and crackle cumin seeds. Add cardamom and cinnamon stick and saute until fragrant. Add turkey and the spices - turmeric, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala and salt.
2.       Break apart the turkey and cook until it is done. Turn off heat and put aside.

Final step                                                       
Bring out the pan with the cauliflower rice and spread evenly with a spatula. Follow this with a layer of turkey. Top this layer with vegetables. Cover with the lid and cook in low for 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves and serve.

Itch to Stitch blog tour

Itch to Stitch blog tour Day 2

Sewing community is such a vast space spanning multiple continents and what brings everyone together is their love for sewing. When someone in this community is hurting, sewists all over the world come together to make it better. Our much loved designer, Kennis Wong - owner of Itch to Stitch Designs, was robbed a couple of weeks ago leaving her with no way to run her business. This blog tour is promoting Itch to Stitch patterns to make up for some of the monetary loss so she can be back on her feet and produce top notch quality patterns again!

I picked up the Newport top in the recent sale and wanted to make a nice top for this blog tour. I'm also really feeling the velvets this time of the year. Stylish Fabrics is one of the sponsors of this tour and I picked up mauve velvet and charcoal ponte to make my outfit.



The pinky mauve color is probably my all time favorite color for nail paint but I rarely wear clothes in this color. I'm not entirely s…

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim
This is my most favorite jeans I have made thus far! It is Simplicity 8222 pattern by designer Mimi G. It comes with a quilted bomber jacket pattern as well that I will make some day.  What makes this my favorite is the stretch denim I used by Simpli by Ti! The denim has 25% horizontal stretch and is mid weight. It is very comfortable to wear. The color is much more vibrant in person than is on the Simpli by Ti sample photo!  The color in my photos is an accurate representation. It is the true denim color. 

I like the fit of this pair. I achieved the fit by first making all the length adjustments I need. I'm only 5' tall so I needed to take out length from the inseam and also crotch depth. The jeans are high rise and hips are drafted to fit 9" below the waist. I removed .5". I had made this pattern before and the rise is too long on that pair. One of the biggest changes I made to the pattern was to make an elastic waistband…

Sew what do I wear - Professional Edition

This is my first blog tour!! I'm so excited to be a part of the Patterns for Pirates/Made for Mermaids Sew what do I wear - Professional Edition blog tour!

If you're read this blog ever before, you know I love wearing handmade items to work. Ever since I started sewing, my ultimate goal and dream was to make a fantastic work wardrobe that would fit well, look nice, and be well received! I believe I am well on my way. 75% of what I wear to work these days is handmade. I'm still working on getting the fit dialed in just right but each garment is an opportunity to improve.


SOS Pants and Favorite Tee have been staples of my work wardrobe. If you have seen my Spring/Summer Sudoku you know that already :-) I made a couple of nicer additions for this blog tour. I wanted something a little special that would still work in a daytime work environment but elevate my looks a bit more.


I'd been wanting to do a choker neck Tee but didn't want a whole new pattern for it so I hacke…
