Rice with Fried Cauliflower, etc.

This is my version of rice with cauliflower. I fried the cauliflower first before adding it to the rice. One variation is cooking the rice together with the cauliflower but I prefer to cook it in this way. The reason was, I like the taste of fried cauliflower, that’s all. LOL 😀

3 cups Basmati rice (long grain rice)
1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 medium carrot, sliced
1 onion, sliced thinly
4 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup cooking oil

1. Wash the rice then drain for 30 minutes.
2. Heat oil in a pot, fry the cauliflower and carrots for 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Set aside. (Fry the vegetables in several batches)
3. On the same oil, saute the onion slices until transparent.
4. Stir in the drained rice and fry for 3 minutes over medium heat.
5. Add chicken broth and salt. Let it boil, simmer until the liquid are reduced.
6. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to low and cook for 25-30 minutes.
7. When the rice are done, add the fried vegetables. Mix well, transfer to a platter and top with fried fish or meat.
