1.The Rice:

In the morning start soaking 2 cups of rice in 31/2 cups of water. After soaking 8-12 hours, add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric, 1 teaspoon sea salt and 2 tablespoons of butter.  Bring to a boil and drop the heat to low and cook about 45 min.

2. Steam any of the following vegetables:

– carrots, thinly sliced

– string beans

– red or green cabbage, shredded

– broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces

3. Fry about 1 pound of either shrimp, chicken, or any white fish that has been cut into cubes. I like to use left over chicken/turkey from a roast

4. Slice up about 4 hard boiled eggs. Eggs boiled in water for about 18 to 20 minutes.

5. Make the almond sauce. Can be made a day in advance.

6. Set out the following in small bowls:

cultured vegetable of your choice

– onions, chopped and fried in butter

– your favorite hot sauce

– shredded unsweetened shredded coconut

– fresh pineapple, chopped into small pieces

– small wedges of lime

-salted roasted nuts, chopped (I like cashews)

I usually put out all the following ingredients and then let people help themselves. I suggest the following:

1. Place the rice in a circle on the plate.

2. Add your choice of steamed vegetables.

3. Top with a choice of chicken, fish, shrimps or nothing if you are vegetarian.

4. Next add a few slices of egg.

5. Spoon the almond sauce on top.

6. Sprinkle the ginger, fried onions, hot sauce, coconut, pineapple, cultured vegetable, nuts and a squeeze of lime.
