My favorite dish
Loved everything about it.
Delicious & Perfect Pilaf!
This Seeti kit magically transformed itself into a perfectly balanced, flavorful gourmet meal in my instant pot! The textures are lovely with wonderful surprises of cashews and spices in each bite. I served it with sliced, fresh white onion on top and a squeeze of lime. We enjoyed it so much. We don't eat meat in our home often, so I neglected to defrost the chicken first—whoops. I sauteed a little longer and added 4 minutes of cook time after the initial venting and it was absolutely perfect and tender! You need to try this.
Dinner ready despite crying baby!
I had stashed this chicken pilaf mealkit for a rainy day and after a long afternoon with a fussing baby, had to resort to making dinner with baby in a carrier sling (and to increase the stakes — she was crying in there). She is still crying but I managed to make and eat dinner. Thank you Seeti for feeding newbie parents with healthy, yummy food! Now I have energy to soothe her!
