She was sick for a week: fever, ear pain, wearied and of course lost her appetite.
I wanted to cook something that tastes like nothing she'd have had so far. Something healthy that smelled good, looked good and tasted good!
|Fry onions, add grated carrots|
With only a couple of carrots a red onion and a jar of pre-cooked butter beans I created a dish, which I decided to name it: "HALU Polo"!
|add butter beans and sprinkle saffron, crushed cardamom seeds and cinnamon over|
|layer by layer add the mix on top of half-cooked rice and add a hand-full of raisins on top.|
Despite all the effort I couldn't make her eyes shine on the table. The sickness won again and I lost for the 5th night in a raw. Although she couldn't eat more than a spoon or two, she made it clear that topping up with raisins were my biggest mistake. No matter how she likes them and how she likes sweet dishes.
