Orange Rice | Orange Sadam | Gluten Free and Vegan | A Masterchefmom Original

Orange Rice | Orange Sadam

Hi Supermoms,

Innovating recipes that are also easy for everyone to try, makes me so happy. One such creation is my 'Orange Sadam'. I made this rice some time ago and been asked by many of you to share the recipe.  Finally got time to update the recipe .

I love to incorporate fruits in my cooking . They bring so much of freshness to the regular menu. Also, it is no secret that my children ( and myself 😁) are reluctant fruit eaters. 

I added  ripe green chillies ( it had turned into orange in colour) to give that colour effect. You can add fresh red chillies or green chillies for this recipe. I also added green peas and mint leaves and they complimented the dish without overpowering flavours. 

Tangy and mildly spicy orange rice was loved and taste approved by the family. Yes, another recipe from my kitchen to yours which is so easy to make but new and refreshing too. 

Hope you enjoy cooking and feeding this rice. Do share it with me on instagram or facebook

Will update fresh pictures when I make them next. 

Chef Tips: 
a. Dry the orange skin in sunlight for a couple of days and powder it. You can use 1/4 teaspoon of this zest to flavour the rice. 
b. Adjust spice according to the variety of orange you are using.
