in Foodies Bee Hive8 months ago

Hola a todos como se encuentran? Hoy quiero compartir con ustedes este arroz con maní y perejil, que hace un contraste perfecto como acompañante de casi cualquier plato que tenga sabores muy intensos, tal cual como el curry en leche de coco que publique antes.

Hello everyone, how are you? Today I want to share with you this rice with peanuts and parsley, which makes a perfect contrast as a side to almost any dish that has very intense flavors, such as the coconut milk curry that I published before.

Por su sabor a nuez intenso además de la frescura del perejil, este platillo también puede acompañar otras recetas como un strogonoff de pollo o platos con muchos sabor como un asado negro, que no es lo más tradicional, pero queda muy bien!

Due to its intense nutty flavor in addition to the freshness of parsley, this dish can also accompany other recipes such as a chicken strogonoff or dishes with many flavors such as a black roast, which is not the most traditional, but it is very good!

Ingredientes / Ingredients:

  • 250 gr de Arroz Blanco / 250 gr of White Rice
  • 500 gr de Agua Filtrada o Caldo de Vegetales / Filtered Water or Vegetable Broth
  • Media Cebolla Pequeña / Half of Small Onion
  • 2 Dientes de Ajo / 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 200 gr de Maní, sin concha / 200 gr of Peanuts, without shell
  • 2 Manojos de Perejil / 2 Parsley Bunches
  • 2 Cucharadas de Mantequilla / 2 Tablespoons of Butter
  • Sal y Pimienta, al gusto / Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preparación / Preparation:

1- Empezamos preparando el arroz / We start preparing the rice.

Lo primordial aquí es hacer un arroz sencillo, ya que queremos que la estrella del plato sea el sabor a nuez, que nos lo dará el maní.

The main thing here is to make a simple rice, since we want the star of the dish to be the nutty flavor, which will be given by peanuts.

Empezamos cortando la cebolla en cuadritos pequeños y los dientes de ajo lo más pequeños que podamos. En una olla con un chorrito de aceite, primero salteamos la cebolla y cuando veamos que ya estan translúcidas, agregamos el ajo.

We start by cutting the onion into small squares and the garlic cloves as small as possible. In a pot with a drizzle of oil, first sauté the onion and when we see that they are already translucent, add the garlic.

Ahora es turno de agregar el arroz, déjalo que se cocine por unos minutos para que se tueste un poco y libere mejor su sabor, ten mucho cuidado de no quemarlo.

Now it is the turn to add the rice, let it cook for a few minutes so that it toasts a little and release its flavor better, be very careful not to burn it.

Seguimos agregando el agua o el caldo de vegetales. Como un sabor más sutil creo que sería la única vez que no recomendaría utilizar un caldo de res o de pollo.

We continue adding the water or the vegetable broth. As a more subtle flavor I think it would be the only time I would not recommend using a beef or chicken broth.

No soy muy experto haciendo arroz, por lo que no puedo vivir sin mi arrocera, pero aquí utilice por cada taza de arroz dos tazas de agua. Apenas empieza a hervir el agua, bajo la llama al mínimo y tapo la olla para que se cueza bien el arroz.

I am not very expert at making rice, so I cannot live without my rice cooker, but here I use two cups of water for every cup of rice. As soon as the water begins to boil, I turn the flame to a minimum and cover the pot so that the rice cooks well.

Mientras esperamos que el arroz este listo, podemos continuar cortando el maní en trozos más pequeños y cortando el perejil en trozos muy pequeños. Yo utilice perejil criollo, que es un variante del común que conocemos, sus hojas son muy pequeñas pero tienen un sabor mucho más intenso, además que la tenemos plantada en nuestro jardín, jajaja.

While we wait for the rice to be ready, we can continue cutting the peanuts into smaller pieces and cutting the parsley into very small pieces. I used Creole parsley, which is a variant of the common one we know, its leaves are very small but they have a much more intense flavor, and we have it planted in our garden, jajaja.

Que no se te olvide agregarle sal a tu gusto en esta etapa, pues a nadie le gusta un arroz demasiado insípido.

Don't forget to add salt to your liking at this stage, as no one likes rice that is too bland.

Una vez que ya esté listo el arroz, que esté suavecito y se haya secado todo el líquido, lo dejamos reposar hasta que se enfríe un poco.

Once the rice is ready, it is soft and all the liquid has dried, we let it rest until it cools a little.

2- Ahora a integrar bien todos los ingredientes / Now to integrate all the ingredients well.

Comenzamos derritiendo las dos cucharadas de mantequilla en una olla un poquito más grande que en la que hicimos el arroz, para luego agregar el maní picado.

We start by melting the two tablespoons of butter in a pot a little bigger than the one we made the rice in, and then adding the chopped peanuts.

Dejamos el maní por unos pocos minutos para que libere su aroma y luego agregamos el perejil picado finamente. No debería transcurrir mucho tiempo entre este paso y que agreguemos el arroz, para que el perejil no se queme.

We leave the peanuts for a few minutes to release its aroma and then we add the finely chopped parsley. It should not be long between this step and we add the rice, so that the parsley does not burn.

Al agregar el arroz deja la llama un minuto o dos, lo que queremos es calentar el arroz e integrarlo con los demás Ingredientes, ya que si lo dejas mucho tiempo podemos sobrecocinarlo, con el resultado de un arroz muy seco y duro.

When adding the rice, leave the flame for a minute or two, what we want is to heat the rice and integrate it with the other Ingredients, since if you leave it for a long time we can overcook it, with the result of a very dry and hard rice.

Una vez finalizado todo esto, ya estaremos listos para servirlo y disfrutar / Once all this is finished, we will be ready to serve it and enjoy.

Lo primero que notaremos es lo aromático que es, y al combinarlo con otro plato con sabores fuertes se mezclará muy bien, ayudándonos a sentir cada uno de los sabores con más facilidad, aunque por si solo también es muy delicioso.

The first thing we will notice is how aromatic it is, and when combined with another dish with strong flavors, it will mix very well, helping us to feel each of the flavors more easily, although by itself it is also very delicious.
