I know what you are thinking, but this recipe works!!. I found this recipe in one of my cookbook. My boys loved it and even hubby gave thumbs up ( of course my hubby eats almost everything I make except okra). I replaced the smoked trout used in the original recipe with canned tuna and added chillies and to give it a little kick. The only problem I faced was finding the right oven dish to fit everything. So its best to find a tray first, arrange empty cannelloni tubes inside neatly and then choose the one that you are most happy with.

I keep meaning to do a Donna Hay recipe but always forget to upload it or sometimes something goes wrong and the end result is not worth talking about.
Anyway, this recipe is very easy and its one of those one pot dishes that you can do within an hour. I didnt get medium grain rice so used basmathi rice, I used half a can of tomatoes and also replaced chicken pieces with bone rather than using chicken breast pieces. Sometimes if I dont have parsley I sprinkle some fresh coriander leaves instead.

Its always hot in Male and every where in Maldives . So there are days I want to have a really nice ice cold drink to quench my thirst. One my newly discovered , or rather my sister's discovery, hot spot for a good drink is a little shop called Luibuin. So during the last school holidays , on days my hubby took the boys for a swim , I make a point to stop here to grab a ice cold drink.

Well, I know I took down some of my Maldivian recipes and this one was probably one of them. Dhon riha ( literally it means fair curry because dhon means fair while riha is curry) . The original curry requires a curry paste made of fennel seeds , garlic , ginger and freshly grated coconut. But its not always easy to make curry paste especially when you are pressed for time or if you are like me hate the washing up, especially on a trying day with a very demanding toddler. ( my little fussy one is just two while his big brother is at school during the morning, so fussy one misses his big brother ).
