India is well-known for its aromatic and flavorful rice dishes that are a staple in everyday meals and festive celebrations. With its diverse culture and rich history, each region adds a unique twist to their rice recipes, making them distinct and cherished. As a professional cook with a passion for history and culture, allow me to take you on a journey to learn the art of cooking Indian rice dishes.
Rice & Pasta
A colleague often brings tuna cannelloni to the office made by her mother and they are so good that I always think “I have to make my tuna cannelloni” but I never found a recipe that I completely liked. Until finally, I came up with this recipe, the perfect one, and at home everyone told me they were great. I did lots to freeze them but not a single one was left.
It is a very easy and economical recipe and it is perfect for children, not only because it is pasta and they always eat meat cannelloni very well, but because they will eat fish without noticing it. You might feel lazy about rolling the cannelloni, but I assure you it does not take so long, and it is worth it because later we can freeze them or have them in the fridge for 3 days, and they are great if we have many guests at home.
Creamy rice with king prawns

I have used king prawns, but of course you can use prawns, shrimps or whaterver you like. The only thing to bear in mind is that you need to use them raw as we will use the shells to make a fumé (fish stock).
Fettucine noodles Alfredo style
I loved this dish from the first moment I tried it. My friend Jenny prepared me these fettucine and I quickly asked her the recipe to suit it for the Thermomix . It is pasta, in this case fettucine noodles, seasoned with diced chicken and a tasty creamy cheese sauce. Creamy sauces for pasta are …
Spaguetti aglio, olio e peperoncino
This name sounds so well and we are just talking about spaghetti with garlic, oil and hot pepper, a classic of the Italian cuisine. Simple, cheap, fast, but really delicious and tasty. In addition, we will use the technique of cooking pasta in our Thermomix, which is very simple and we make sure they are al dente.
Greek yogurt risotto
What a surprising risotto! I assure you that I did not imagine that something so simple could be so tasty and so easy to prepare. You’ll need few ingredients, very basic , but very tasty , like feta cheese. And the creamy texture that gives the greek yogurt … mmm it’s delicious. Would you like to try it?
