Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Breadcrumbs on June 28, 2011

    p. 291 - I likely have no business reviewing this recipe because I didn’t have the extra time to prepare the dish as intended so in the end, I did use all the ingredients called for in the dish, I just prepared them in a different manner. Once my basmati rice was cooked (I used brown btw), I heated up the butter/oil mixture in my wok then stirred in the rice and, using the author’s technique from another rice dish, pressed the rice against the side of the wok to form a crust. Once a sufficient amount of crustiness had developed, I stirred in the herbs to incorporate then made a well in the centre of the wok and poured in the egg/yogurt mixture and gradually stirred to incorporate into the rice mixture. While what I did may not have been what was intended and, undoubtedly produced a result unlike the author had envisioned, it sure was a tasty dish!!
