Yellow Rice

Chad loves yellow snow rice.  Sometimes we call it fried rice but to me that conjures up Chinese flavors. The yellow rice he made for our Thanksgiving focused more on the Indian flavors.  It's an easy side dish for lots of meals.  Last night we served the left overs (which had been frozen and reheated in the microwave) to friends with ham and the left over sweet potato masala.  It went over pretty well with all the kids (even the pickier eaters).
I cooked a bunch of plain white rice in the rice cooker. Chad melted some ghee in the wok and then stirfried about 1/2 cup chopped onions.  He added 1 tsp of turmeric and 1 tsp of crushed coriander seeds and salt to taste.  Then he stirred in the rice.  Easy-peasy.  Sometimes we add peas or an egg.  Sometimes we use sesame oil or soy sauce for flavors.  Either way it's a favorite around here.
