Parsi rice is one of my favorite rice recipes. Here I share how to make it quickly and easily with a rice cooker, without compromising on flavour.
Putting an additional 10 minutes of effort into making the perfect rice to match your dish really does make a huge different to the overall meal.
Parsi rice is the perfect accompaniment to many curry dishes. Parsi cuisine perfectly combines sweet and sour flavours, and if that's something you like the sound of, why not check out this recipe for Chicken Dhansak.
