Chicken Fried Red Rice

with Romano Beans

Chicken Fried Red Rice with Romano Beans

Red rice has been growing in the mountains of Bhutan (south of Tibet and east of Nepal) for thousands of years. This rare variety of rice can only be found in that region and is the kingdom’s only export. Special growing conditions like the high altitude and irrigation from nearby glaciers create the complex, nutty flavor, and unique color this rice is known for.

  • 1 Small Piece Ginger
