Am on a roll! Cooked mushroom barley risotto for dinner and made roast chicken thighs for some meat to go with.
The barley I used? The ones chinese mothers have used for generations for the familiar barley drink.
All at the cost of RM0.60 per packet.
Who needs arborio rice? Who? Suckers!
The most expensive ingredient was the fresh mushrooms. Think I’d use canned ones next time since I probably can’t tell the difference after a spot of sauteeing.
By the way, you must absolutely try the chicken recipe cause it was crazy good!! No marinade, just salt & pepper. I was shocked at how delicious it was.
