What's with the take-out basmati rice from Malabar Hill?

PlasticMoonRain | Nov 7, 2011 07:00 PM

My wife brought home takeout food from the Elmsford-based Indian restaurant Malabar Hill tonight, really on a fluke. Normally, we don't take out food from there (we live about 15+ minutes away) but she happened to pass by there on the way home from an event she attended for my daughter.

While the food was OK, we noticed the strangest things in the boxes of rice that came with the food: leaves, fairly large cinnamon sticks, and other little objects.

I've had Indian take-out from several place around Westchester, but never did I think I would find a rather aromatic forest mixed in with my basmati rice.

It struck me as strange.
