Cumin Rice Timbales

25 Min

Who doesn't love a dish that looks fancy, tastes great, but is so easy? We haven't met anyone and this dish is a mix of all of those awesome things! Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for these Cumin Rice Timbales because they are truly show stoppers!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds or 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup converted rice, uncooked
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly toasted (optional)

What to Do

  1. Cook first 3 ingredients in oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until onion is tender.

  2. Add rice; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken broth, water, and salt. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat, and stir in parsley. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Pack warm rice mixture into 6 (6-ounce) custard cups lightly coated with cooking spray. Immediately invert onto a serving platter. Sprinkle with toasted cumin seeds, if desired.


Fancy Shmancy is what I call these little rice molds. They look impressive on a dinner plate, but they're so easy to make. Just pack the cooked rice in a custard cup and invert it onto the serving plate. Voila! Toast cumin seeds to sprinkle on top, if you'd like. Just stir 'em in a dry skillet over medium heat 30 seconds or until toasted.
