Cajun rice with Shrimpsby Cook Gourmet

Rs. 549 Serves 2

The most common misunderstood fact of Creole and Cajun cuisine is that these two unique food ways are interchangeable. While there is crossover in ingredients and techniques, the two cuisines are distinct. The best way to understand these differences is to know a little about the colonial history of Louisiana

    DIRECTIONS

       
      1

      Prepare white rice Rinse off rice under water to remove starch. Take 3 cups (750 ml) of water in an open pan and bring water to the boil. When water has come to the boil stir in rice, along with salt and bring it back to a gentle simmer. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 12-15 minutes under low flame. Keep rice a little undone, as they would be cooked later with shrimps. Drain excessive water.
