A very popular recipe in the Middle East, especially loved in the Gulf countries, Bukhari Rice is an aromatic and flavorful rice dish that features numerous spices and has an interesting origin. This dish gets its name from the famous city of Bukhara, a formerly prominent outpost on the fabled Silk Road which traversed the entire Asian continent for centuries. As the terminus of the route, the Middle East was flush with spices ready to be shipped and traded further afield. This dish reflects the spices one could have found among the famed Silk Road.
Bukhari Rice Paste encapsulates all the spices and captures the authentic taste of Bukhari Rice. Furthermore, this paste also captures the East Indies spice flavor - namely the Malayan spice route. This mixture of gulf spice and malaysian flavor gives the Bukhari Rice a wonderful aroma, an intricate flavor and lovely color.
