The đuveč rice in the rice cooker 

Đuveč rice in the rice cooker

Đuveč rice, a typical Balkan rice preparation, is a rice and vegetable specialty with an intriguing flavor. Cooking requires, after having seasoned the ingredients on the fire, an absorption cooking, and as for pilaf rice and as for cooking a perfect BaiFan the rice cooker is certainly the ideal solution.

Although this rice is generally a preparation with meat and vegetables that can be used as a single dish (and more than complete), here I have prepared it in a vegetarian version, reduced to a minimum, to be used also as a side dish, and cooked for precisely in the rice cooker.
Great!

Cut the onion into cubes and chop up the garlic
Fry them in a pan with oil, being careful not to let them color.

Add the rice and raisestir the flame just enough to toast it.

Add and cook the peas and pepper cut into large squares briefly.

Season with salt, pepper, tomato paste, paprika and, if you like (and if there is any in the house) ajvar.
(if you have a couple of mushrooms left in the kitchen, add them as well, sliced ​​or cut into quarters)

Pour into the rice cooker and cover with the vegetable broth and the diced cherry tomatoes; cover without mixing.

Turn on the rice cooker and wait for the cooking to finish.
(the rice cooker switches to heating only after about ten minutes but you have to wait another ten minutes, without opening the lid, for the rice to be completely cooked!)

Serve in individual dishes sprinkling of parsley chopped by hand.

  • print pdf Recipe, text only: to print or download.
  • Acqua: you can substitute part of the water with vegetable stock, or dissolve it in a medium ct. of granulated vegetable.
  • Sale: be careful to use a little salt: because all the water is absorbed during cooking, even the salt dissolved there will be absorbed by the rice.
  • Rice: long-wheat rice, such as basmati, are the ones that give the best results in the rice cooker; but I can assure you have used, for more than twenty years, almost only Italian arborio rice without ever having problems.
  • This rice, excellent on its own as a first course, is the ideal side dish for grilled preparations such as i cevapcici
