Leftover Lunch (& More Oven-Fried Broccoli)

In my pantry today:

  • 2 c leftover Basmati rice
  • 3 tbsp minced onion
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp kala jeera
  • 1 tbsp ground golden flax seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp asafoetida

I’m making more oven-fried broccoli for lunch. It was, indeed, delicious enough to warrant an immediate do-over, but just broccoli makes for a lonely lunch. What to do?

Fluff up that cold half-pot of rice from the fridge. Put onion and jeera in a cold pan with your butter and crank it to M. Once the butter is melted, reduce heat to L and let sit for as long as you got — I’ll have had about an hour under my belt before I move to the next step:

Go ahead and have your seasonings mixed together in a dainty cup or some such nonsense. Turn the pan back up to M and begin mixing in rice with the seasoning blend. Fluff and stir until everything is warm, the serve under the much esteemed broccoli. Bazow! 5 spoons!
