Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Turmeric is an aromatic spice with a brilliant yellow color and a pungent, slightly bitter flavor. Often used in Indian and Caribbean cooking, turmeric is commonly added to poultry, rice, seafood and egg dishes.
  • tip 2
    Kalamata olives garnish this Moroccon dish to add a slightly salty flavor. Greek or even ripe olives can be used if you can't get Kalamata olives.
  • tip 3
    Dress up this dish for entertaining when you serve it beside couscous with raisins and Middle Eastern flatbread.
