Finally figured out proper rice!

I've always been impatient when cooking rice, thus my rice was always sticky and clumpy no matter how much I washed it. Today I tried a technique from +Kanan Patel which resulted in perfect basmati rice (and when I say perfect, I mean each grain is soft, fluffy and independent of every other grain that touches it).

I followed that up by making it into a vegetable fried rice, and served it with some shredded roast chicken from Safeway (I was feeling lazy, but some pan-fried chicken breast strips would have been sooo much better here) and some leftover spiced herb yogurt sauce from the lamb seekh kebab I cooked yesterday.

Outstanding results. I mean, 5-star restaurant quality results. And all it took was patience <smh>

Check out how to cook perfect basmati rice here: http://www.spiceupthecurry.com/basmati-rice-recipe/ - follow EVERY STEP PRECISELY and you will not go wrong.

Take it to the next level and make perfect vegetable fried rice right here: http://www.spiceupthecurry.com/vegetable-fried-rice-recipe/

rice cooker, I buy Tilda basmanti rice ( Amazon) always comes out perfect in the rice cooker( 16 years old Presto $9.99 at Walgreens) I never wash but I one knuckle 2 knuckle measure and once the water is in I stir it and I never salt the rice unless I am making a pilaf...then it is not in a rice cooker although I have done in a rice cooker too.

In addition to rapping, Lil Dicky is an aspiring comedian and model. Here's some footage for both his reel and your enjoyment. Madden 17!

What do you guys think? Could you see Lil Dicky in movies? Maybe they'll start calling him Dave just as much as Lil Dicky. Maybe he's the next Paul Rudd, or Miles Teller. But with Kanye West/Dwyane Wade's jawline. Who knows...Me? I'm just a guy he pays to type up his social media descriptions. Crazy application process, he really wants people that are super out there, have their own voices, yada yada yada. Hope I'm not overcompensating right now but I think this is what Dave hired me for. So i'm rollin with it. Have a good day.

PS. It was Dave the whole time

PPS don't you feel great about my future as an actor and model

He's got a point, even if he is a grown man with a plastic bag on his head jumping up and down in front of his ma's curtain because he can't afford a real green screen.

Ever try to pin down that aroma from your bud?
This is a great reference - the interactive version makes it easier to pin it down to a specific aroma from a general scent. And there are different "layers" of flavors at different times - when you open the package, when you grind it up, when you put it in the bowl, can all be totally different from (or complementary to) when you actually fire it up. And none of that is THC - it's all terpenes...

I love me some Texas, but there's some odd people there.
Perhaps it's time to build a wall around Texas and let it fail as a country separate from the United States.

Beef Pineapple Curry (2*) and Chicken Panang Curry (3*) with a side of sticky rice. Fantastic flavors, perfect spiciness, and a very reasonable price for the quality of food. 10/10 will get take-out again.
