2 cups Sunwhite Calrose/medium grain rice
1 kg lamb or beef chunks (boneless)
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
½ cup vegetable oil
1 onion, quartered
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1 teaspoon crushed cardamom
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
2 bay leaves
2 cinnamon sticks
4-5 whole black pepper corns
1 tablespoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper


Rinse the rice, soak it in water for 10 minutes, and then place it in a fine sieve to strain well.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a small pot over high heat and stir in the rice along with a pinch of salt. Stir to coat. Pour in 2 cups of hot water or until the rice is covered. When water starts boiling, cover the pot and cook the rice on low heat for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, keep the pot covered and set it aside.

In a different pot, stir in the cauliflower and cover it with oil. Fry over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until the florets become light golden in colour.

Place the meat chunks in a big pot over medium heat and cover it with water. Bring to boil skimming off any impurities that rise to the top.

Add the onion, garlic, cardamom, bay, cinnamon, black pepper and nutmeg. Stir to combine then cover the pan and cook over low heat for 1 hour at least. Drain the stock and reserve it. Place the meat on paper towels to strain.

When the meat chunks are strained well, return them to the pot and add the fried cauliflower along with allspice, cumin, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes until boiling.

Spoon the cauliflower stew in a large bowl and serve hot with the rice.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
