Turkey & Saffron Rice Dinner

I decided to try something a little different last night for dinner!  Another fun experiment. 🙂  I was really in the mood for some saffron rice, and did not believe all the recipes I saw online that it gets its yellow color from yellow food dye.  It took some time (and a lot of stirring) to get the saffron to give the rice the nice golden yellow color, but it was definitely worth the wait.  I also added a little butter and a pinch of salt to the jasmine rice that I started with, and finished by adding in a little fresh chopped parsley.

The turkey mixture was a fun experiment that turned out amazing.  I started with a little peanut oil in the bottom of the pan, and added in ground turkey, and chopped tomatoes and onions.  I mixed all my seasoning together in my mortar and pestle to grind up before adding.  I used 1/4 tsp of each:  mustard seed, cumin seed, caraway, coriander, thyme, savory, ground white pepper, black pepper, and salt.  I also added an 1/8 tsp of cinnamon and chili powder.  This is definitely an experiment that I will be making again in the future!
