We usually buy jasmin rice, basmati can be a bit too strong. +1 for the cardamom.
We either cook something drowned in coconut milk with some curry, think about the stuff you get in thai restaurants. Beware of the sauces you can buy at china stores, I guess lots of the crabs and seafood stuff they put in them are not kosher. We add lemon grass and coriander, if it was available at the shop, thai basil sometimes.
Or we fry things (mostly fake meat, mock duck/chicken or tofu) with sesame oil and ad vegetables.
If GIS is any indication, pigs in a blanket is about 97% wieners in
dough as compared to sausages wrapped in pancakes. I'll eat them
In Soviet Russia, blanket is in pig !!
Rice is best when formed into small "clumps" and served with thin slices of raw fish properly draped over each rice "clump." ;)
Oh, that reminds me of something I enjoyed doing with rice.
I like to have nori sheets, which I can slice into smaller strips. I then use chopsticks to wrap the nori sheet around a ball of rice, maybe dipping the whole thing in a soy sauce or something. It might be an acquired taste, as nori can be rather strong, but worthwhile, as I think its fairly healthy.
Rice balls. There are many different variations. Can be made like a meatball but instead of breadcrumbs using
rice. I have had them with the rice was wrapped around the cheese and meat filling and then deep fried.
The Cardamom is really good in rice. Also, a bit of ginger simmered in with it and a touch of sweet rice vinegar added at the end make it pretty yummy.
we like risotto rice - not quite as sticky as sushi rice, but still quite yummy.
here, pigs in blankets are referred to as "moses in the basket"
But is Moses safe to eat?
What could be more kosher than a jew?
IKR? Who doesn't like chocolate?
Lots of curry is good on rice, that and a bit of coconut milk. Mmmmm. Sorry about the drool.

In a way, she's lucky. We recently found a source of green tomatoes out here, and she's been gorging herself on green tomato pie whenever she can as a substitute.
Incidentally, my sister is a vegetarian, and I occasionally sample the various fake meats she gets. For the most part, they're way off. A few manage to get surprisingly close, though. You might want to try some fake fish and see if you can make a half decent fish and chips out of that. It's almost certain not to be as good as the real deal, but it might ease the urge somewhat without risking your life.
That doesn't necessarily follow; I am terribly allergic to fish, but still
crave fish & chips from time to time. If there were some feasible way I could
eat fish without, you know, dying, I would.
