With tonight’s southeast asia theme, plain white jasmine rice is best with curry.  However, I have still a jar of turkey stock I put in freezer since last month (Christmas) and a bag of tumeric powder which I don’t know what to do with it.  This recipe is perfect to use up what I have, especially the bag of pandan leaves in my freezer.

This is a healthy rice pilaf.  I like to use 2:1 portion of brown rice to wild rice.  You can mix in red grain rice too, but I decided not to play with too many rice colors that day.  As an advocate of conserving energy, I always like to have my rice cooker cooking an extra side dish using the top steamer rack.  I used the leftover black cod marinade (see my black cod in hoisin sauce recipe), mix with sliced fresh shitake mushrooms (add a little bit of sesame oil and 1 clove of minced garlic would be good).  Then you have 4 dishes (fish from oven, shitake and mushroom pilaf  from rice cooker, baby bak choy prepared on stovetop in 5 minutes) all hot and ready at the same time!  Planning and timing is the key.
