Saffron Basmati Rice
The mildly spiced rice goes with Beef Curry with Toasted Spices and Lamb Shanks with Lime and Cilantro. Store leftovers separately from the lamb or beef. To reheat the rice, add a teaspoon or 2 of water, and microwave partially covered. The water will rehydrate the grains and make them fluffy again.
