This simple rice pilaf is the perfect accompaniment for our Chicken Korma, as well as lamb or raita. It uses just a half-teaspoon of the prized single-origin wild mountain black cumin, which is harvested by foragers in the Hindu Kush. The peas and carrots give it a bit of color and interest, but the dish is equally good without them.

2 cups Basmati rice1 1/2" piece ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped8 garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped4 tablespoons vegetable oil4 whole single-origin Pemba cloves 1 large pod black cardamom1 cinnamon stick2 bay leaves1/2 teaspoon single-origin wild mountain black cumin1/8 teaspoon whole mace1 medium onion, peeled, cut in half lengthwise and sliced into thin half rings2 small carrots, diced small1 cup peas (if frozen, defrosted)1 teaspoon salt
Wash rice well. Cover with 5 cups water and soak for 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
Blend together the ginger and garlic with 1 tablespoon of water until you have a paste. (I used an immersion blender but you could also use a shallow blender.)Heat oil in a heavy pot over medium-high heat. When the oil is very hot, add cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, black cumin seeds and mace. Stir once and add onion. Stir and fry until the onion turns reddish-brown.
Add the garlic-ginger paste. Fry for 2 minutes. Add the carrots and peas. Stir and fry for 1 more minute. Add drained rice and salt. Lower heat a little and stir and fry rice for 2 to 3 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover tightly and reduce heat to very low. Cook for 25 minutes.
The most basic ceviche recipe doesn't call for much spice (just salt), but we thought our Chili Powder would kick up the flavor and add color and depth. Featuring a blend of Ancho chile, garlic, cumin, paprika and Mexican oregano, the heat level is mild but flavorful.
According to Indian cooking icon Madhur Jaffrey, it is one of the few drinks that people drink with meals in India. The cooling yogurt drink can be made sweet or salty and can be flavored with different fruits and spices. It is popular in India at breakfast, lunch or as a snack.
