Simple Ghee Rice

Ingredients :~
• 4 rice-cups Basmathi rice (washed and soaked in water for 30 minutes, then drain excessive water)
• 4 rice-cups water
• 1 rice-cup evaporated milk (mom changed to coconut milk)
• 1 tbsp salt
• 2-3 tbsp ghee
•1 tbsp margerine
• 2 tbsp garlic-ginger paste
• 5 shallots sliced
• 1 cinnamon stick
• 3 cardamom pods
• 1 star anise
• 1 stalk lemongrass (crushed)
• 2 green chillies (sliced)
• 1 handful mint leaves (chopped) (omitted)
• 1 handful coriander leaves (chopped)
• 2 bay leaves
• yellow food colouring / sprinkle some saffron on cooked rice OR both
• 2 tbsp cashew nuts (omitted)
• 2 tbsp almond nuts (toasted in ghee) (omitted)
• 2 tbsp sultana raisins (toasted in ghee)
*omitted sbb kids are not into nuts...

Method :~
1. Transfer washed and soaked Basmathi rice into rice cooker.
2. In a pan, heat ghee and margerine. Saute cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, star anise, sliced
shallots and green chillies until fragrant.
3. Add garlic-ginger paste and lemongrass. Add mint, coriander and bay leaves. Mix well and pour
the gravy into rice cooker and mix together.
4. Add water, evaporated milk and salt. Mix and allow to cook.
5. Once rice cooked, turn off the switch. Using a chopstick, make few holes in the rice. Add few
dashes of yellow colouring into each hole. Sprinkle saffron if you prefer and some toasted nuts and
raisins. Close the lid. (DO NOT mix the rice immediately!).

  2. No need oil, letak marinated beef dlm kuali, tutup sambil  masak hgga daging agak kering (skali skala kena kacau ye).
