An express way to put two of my favorite rice dishes into one. Not that I am lazy, just trying to be efficient. 😬
1 cup of rice grain
2 cups of Japanese short grain rice
3 cups of coconut milk
2 teaspoons of turmeric powder
1 thick slice of ginger
1 teaspoon of salt
Pinch of sugar
4 screwpine leaves (pandan leaves), tied into knot
Cook your rice as usual in rice cooker. Instead of water, add in coconut milk. Stir in turmeric powder, salt and sugar. Place ginger and pandan leaf in the rice pot. Cook rice in cooker.
A serving of my turmeric coconut rice for a Nasi lemak dinner counts about 500kcal.
Tips: Get the instant Japanese rice which doesn’t need to soak for hours. If not, just follow the direction on its packaging to cook it.
* May use fresh turmeric. Mince it.
