Riz Casimir Recipe

Brought to us by

Riz Casimir is an exotic ethnic recipe inspired by Indian origins and a favourite in Switzerland. I am not schooled in the culinary art of Indian food. I usually enjoy it from a seat at one of our local Indian restaurants. However this Coop@home recipe gave me an opportunity to try something different and keep it simple at the same time.

I’ll call this recipe a bridge to a more traditional version of Riz Casimir that might wrinkle some eyebrows. Why you ask? After doing a little research on the dish it seems that most recipes include bananas, and often peaches and grapes- YUM! I love a good chicken curry salad – which is very similar, only served chilled. When I told my young daughter – who is not a fan of mixing sweet and savory flavors- she made an awful face. My comment was intended to entice her (and you) into trying this new delight one step at a time. “Consider it an indian version of Älpermagronen, which also includes apples ” I said. (Maybe its a stretch).

The recipe for Riz Casimir is found on the Coop@Home site  by clicking here. As always the ingredients are also listed. With a click of a button, everything can be delivered right to your doorstep.

The recipe is fast and easy to make with only 5 main steps.

  1. prepare rice
  2. brown the chicken in batches (set aside)
  3. sauté onions and apples for 2 minutes
  4. add flour (to thicken) and curry (to season)
  5. add the liquid (stock and milk) and cooked chicken back into the pan and simmer for about 6 minutes.

I garnished the curry with sliced almonds and chives. You can easily substitute milk with coconut milk for authenticity and a Dairy Free alternative. This recipe makes a great one dish family meal perfectly matched to our early spring weather. And when you are feeling more adventurous- dont forget to make it with bananas.
