Here is a quick and easy mid-week dinner meal idea, Achiote Pan Seared Chicken on Southwest Rainbow Hash.
Achiote oil, what the heck is that? I have it on hand to use in Mexican cooking. The achiote oil lends the little extra bit of authentic flavor and red color to the chicken. It’s simply annatto seeds that are steeped in oil. You can read more about it here in a post I did a while back. I like to use it now and then and it works perfectly here, but feel free to use regular vegetable oil if you don’t want to make it or have on hand, it’s optional.
Kadhi is a soup like, yogourt based curry. It is often served with Khichdi although some people prefer to drink it on its own. It is another great vegetarian option (as long as you are okay with milk products). When I have a bad cold, I like to make my kadhi extra spicy and drink it to clear my sinuses. I also think the turmeric in it helps since turmeric is supposed to have strong anti-inflammatory properties.
