Chicken Tikka(Pakistan) and Rice Pilaf with carrots, Red Dal and Peas

This evening I used a flavor package mix to make the Chicken Tikka and made a rice pilaf. I do not use the whole amount of BBQ flavoring when I use the mix. You have to play with the amounts to get the amount of spices you like. I came up with this suggestion for amounts.

Amount used of Shan Chicken Tikka BBQ Mix

0 = Baby
1/2 teaspoon = American
1 teaspoon = American/Indian/Pak
1/2 package = Indian/Pak
1 package = Super Indian/Pak

In case you are wondering I use the 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon amount. I like to taste my food.

This is my Rice Pilaf Recipe

2 cups rice
1/4 cup Red Dal
1/4 cup onion minced
2 medium carrots , peeled and minced
1 teaspoon Black cumin
1/2 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
4 cups chicken broth or broth /water mix.
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoon cooking oil

Put 1/2 of the butter and cooking oil in a saute pan on med hot. Put in the onions, carrots and saute or about 2 minutes. Add Dal and saute for 1 more minute. Take out and place in rice cooker or pan. Add the remaining oil and butter and rice to the saute pan. Saute for about 2 minutes. Put the rice in the pan with the carrot and onions. Add the cumin and broth. Bring to boil, turn down to a simmer and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Let set for a few minutes before serving.
