Bringhe, a Filipino-style Paella made of glutinous rice, chicken, sausage, vegetables, and coconut milk is hearty, tasty, and sure to be a crowd favorite. It's the perfect one-pot meal for all your special occasions!
In a wide, thick-bottomed skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add chorizo de bilbao and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 to 5 minutes or until color changes and lightly browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
In the pan, heat another tablespoon of oil. Add onions and garlic and cook until softened.
Add rice and cook, stirring regularly, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly toasted.
Add fish sauce and continue to cook for 1 minute.
Add the coconut milk, broth, chicken, chorizo de bilbao, julienned carrots, bell peppers, green peas, and raisins.
Add turmeric powder and stir to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil for about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cover the rice mixture with banana leaves, cover the pan with lid, and continue to cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is fully cooked and liquid is absorbed.
If you like to toast the bottom, transfer the rice to a wide pan lined with banana leaves, cover with banana leaves, and cook on medium heat until it forms "socarrat" (crust). Flip the rice so the toasted bottom goes to the top and continue to cook to again form a crust.
To serve, garnish with red and green bell peppers, hardboiled eggs, and carrot florets.
The recipe calls for unwashed rice. If you prefer to wash the rice, make sure to drain well using a fine-mesh sieve as the extra moisture might affect consistency and make the bringhe too wet or mushy.
