Mushroom Coconut Milk Pulao
This is a recipe that is a fusion of a Goan pulao and a Muslim ghee rice preparation my mother makes. It uses coconut milk so it tastes a lot like the Thai green curries. It is soothing and yet heavy because it is cooked in coconut milk in place of water. If you are a non vegetarian, you can drop in some chicken or meatballs instead of mushroom for some different flavours.
We have it with a middle eastern curry called fasoulia which is a red kidney bean stew in tomato sauce. But a simple raita and pickle can accompany this one pot meal.
