You just made yourself some refried beans and think, how amazing. Let's make some Spanish rice. You open the cupboard and oh shoot, you don't have tomato sauce. Don't fear, there is another solution to make a Spanish right alternative.

 

Spanish Rice

 

1 cup of rice

1 cup of water

Small cup of water [for later, the amount of water in the cup doesn't matter, this really depends on taste, I like mine dry, so I just have a little bit of water] and I mean a small cup don't make your rice to soggy

Vegetable bouillon cube

Spices [Cumin, Ms. Dash Chipotle seasoning, Granulated garlic, granulated onion, cayenne pepper, cumin, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, and chili powder (optional I like it cause it gives it spice)]

Onion [red or yellow, depends on the flavor you want. Red onion is more bitter and will balance out the spice with a more dull bitter flavor. Yellow is more sweet and will give it a kind of sweet kick]

 

 

1. Boil your rice in a pot, with the water and the vegetable cube

 

2. While rice is cooking cut onion however you like them, I liked them kind of chunky and diced not minced

 

3. When rice is finished turn off  and let rice cool for a while. I generally put it in the refigerator for an hour [just as if you were making fried rice]

 

4. When rice is finished cooling heat up a pan, remember hot pan cold oil. When pan is nice and hot spray Pam or whatever cooking spray you use unto the pan

 

5. Brown the onions unto the pan, then add a little drop of the water from the small cup unto the onions to keep them from burning

 

6. Add the rice and stir fry for three minutes, add small amounts of water as you go to make sure nothing burns

 

7. Add spices [I don't measure my spices, I'm the type of person who likes bold spices and bold flavor and thus I put  spices to suit my taste], add the rest of the water. Give it another one to two minutes and then turn off heat

 

8. After letting it cool, serve it up

 

---

 

I hope everyone enjoys the recipe and I hope that it doesn't turn out bad for anyone. I have made it several times, my roommates like it and its always turned out well for me.

This sounds really tasty! I actually like Arroz Amarillo more than the standard Mexican Rice (with tomato sauce) so I might try this.

Well, I say try your best with whatever ingredients you have around. Where do you live, if you don't mind me asking? I may be able to offer some assistance with substituting different ingredients. smiley.gif

I do not know a great deal about Bangladesh myself, outside of the Bengal origin, but I'd love to learn more. If you're in Bangladesh, you aren't far from India and Burma (Myanmar) though, so I would substitute your own type of rice and spices like coriander, chili, etc. It might taste a little different, but it should still be good.

I'll definitely let you know when I try to make it. I'll even try adding coriander and cumin as well. Are you going to try to make it too?

Here I am responding belated, but the spices are chose are for what I have in the pantry. And the recipes never stays the same. Its always with what I have. So don't worry about adding different ingredients to much.
