I don’t think that I’ve ever tasted a rice dish that was quite so tasty before.
Maybe it’s ‘cuz I was really hungry when I took the pictures, but I had the hardest time ever not
eating wolfing down the entire dish right then and there. The first 5 minutes what felt like an hour and a half, during which I couldn’t even take a bite but yet, had to look and stare and SMELL this baby from an inch away, were just excruciating.
I only had one thing in mind: DIG IN!
To be honest, I don’t think that I’ve ever been so eager to taste any of my dishes. But this one smells SOOO GOOD, that alone will almost certainly knock your socks right off.
Imagine when you finally get to tasting it.
What happens is, you take a bite, you roll your eyes, you stop breathing, you die. This is just so good, so tasty! With so many different flavors and textures going on, you have to give it another try.
So you have another bite, and another, before you know it, you’ve already engulfed the entire portion that you’d plated for photo purposes only because, well, it isn’t even dinner time yet and well, you’re only taking photos for now and then you’re supposed to wait another hour or so…
Oops, too late. See that bowl? It didn’t last long.
If you’re going to make that one, make sure you schedule it right, or be prepared to eat early that night!
Now this makes for a great side dish, but you could also have it as a main, with a side of vegetables. I personnally chose to have mine as a main dish, with a very generous side of steamed rapini.
Well, the second night, that is. When I had the leftovers.
Because on the first night, I didn’t even bother with a side dish.
Or with sitting down, for that matter…
