Turmeric turns this simple rice side dish with onion, peas and carrots into a beautiful bright yellow colour. Sunflower seeds add a really nice texture and crunch. Adjust the amount of turmeric to your liking.
Pregnant or nursing women, young children or diabetics should consult their doctor before consuming turmeric.
Turmeric can stain skin, utensils, chopping boards and work surfaces.
Great! Easy and fast. I used extra turmeric and cayenne, and had no peas so I subbed in bell pepper. Yummy! - 09 Nov 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
7-30-2016 ~Great flavor, pretty on the plate, this plays a great supporting role to any grilled or roasted meat or fish. I love the addition of both the carrots and the peas, which added color and interest. The turmeric, too, contributed beautiful color and flavor beyond the simple, basic rice dish. Neither the pine nuts nor the sunflower seeds spoke to me so I omitted them. Omitted the cayenne pepper too. I preferred not to cook the peas with the rice, which in my opinion would have overcooked them. I simply stirred them in at the last, just before serving. We both enjoyed this with Key West Chicken, also from this site and some fresh sautéed Swiss chard from my garden. In a word, Hubs called this “interesting.” - 31 Jul 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
