The proper elements, cooked appropriately, can elevate a dish greater than any kitchen methods. Get your fingers on some morel mushrooms. They’re virtually price their weight in gold, as a result of they’ll’t be cultivated. They can solely be foraged in the proper weather conditions. In India, they’ll be present in Kangra Valley, Manali and different components of Himachal Pradesh after some weeks of snowfall. Locally, they’re often known as gucchi or kanagucchi. They’re wanted as they’re absolute umami bombs!

Make positive you rinse them totally 4-5 occasions, and then rehydrate them in scorching water. Don’t throw away this water. Cook your rice on this water, and it’ll be stuffed with flavour. Cook the morel mushrooms with yoghurt and aromatic spices, and work them into your rice. Another notice concerning the spices: roast them earlier than you begin to work them in.
