A side of rice, with a kick of flavor – this cilantro lime rice pairs well with anything, but especially Mexican or Indian cuisines.
I love me some Indian food. Although I’m from New Zealand, we have a large Indian population in Auckland. You can usually find Indian restaurants right alongside all the usual fish & chip shops, burger joints, pizza and other takeout food options. It’s somewhat catching on here in the USA, but when I really need a fix, I tend to make it myself.
Making the main dish can be time consuming, but side dishes are super important to really round out the experience. I have to admit, adding lime is not necessarily typical of Indian food (I don’t think), but I think that hint of freshness with the cilantro really adds something to a well spiced and warm main dish. It’s super easy – but, for those who need inspiration/recipe/directions, I’m here for ya!
Want more side dishes? Of course you do!
