        Thank you so much,
        I somehow thought that may be your response. Mum r.i.p was an Irish lady and often used to say to me ‘you and that auld measuring’. Of course mum had no scales in her day & used her brains. I have become more confident with a lot of recipes but really am new to Asian ones & concerned about too much spice. As with all cooking though, trial & error. Will give it a go as I prefer a notvtoo rigid approach to cooking.
        Keep you posted 🙂

      4. Yes you are absolutely right. The taste and flavour you mum bring without scale but using her brain no one can do with csale. Actually food and it’s taste comes from our brain and experience not by scale. Rather we should add more and more love to food. And I’m sure the dish will be perfect. Keep visiting, liking and commenting! Thank you.

      Yumee, loved the chicken pilaf. Really enjoyed cooking it. Had some left over rice & chicken pieces. I par boiled small potatoes for later stage when adding pre cooked chicken also. I was Abit hesitant with the spices but all told the end product was lovely. The egg accompinent complemented the dish . I used olive oil instead of ghee. Somehow I could identify the individual flavours and the onion flavours and substance didn’t disappear as with some dishes.
      Thank you for giving me the confidence to create the dish.
