If you ever travelled to Asia, you might notice in some countries people do cook yellow rice. It is not the usual natural colour of rice which is white. Turmeric and some other spices are added while cooking to colour the rice. I tried to cook this yellow rice yesterday and would like to share pictures and ingredients with you. The way I cook it was the easiest way that I know with minimal ingredients which I could find locally. I am sure other places in other countries have their own ways of cooking.

We use rice cooker to cook this rice. After the rice is washed, add water as usual and add all the ingredients mentioned below. Let them cook with the rice. That is all, easy isn’t it?

Things that are needed: lemon grass (one or two), turmeric powder (a tea-spoon), blue ginger (a few slices), coconut milk (a small cartoon box/can. But I did not add coconut milk in my rice. I try to avoid the rich fattening coconut milk), bay leaves (which I didn’t have at home so I didn’t add this either). All these are added into the rice cooker with the already washed rice and cook it. You may add a few pinches of salt as well.

Eggs (beat the eggs, fried and then shredded it).

Shallots (sliced and fried them). These two are for rice topping when it is served. You can do the slicing and frying while the rice is cooking in the cooker.

Some of the turmeric powder is usually visibly noticed on top of rice once the rice is cooked. In this case, you have to stir the rice a bit once it is done.

I added small pieces of fried chicken wing and drum stick and a few pieces of green leaves and a tiny bit of home-made chilli accompanied the rice. Enjoy.

*note: the wing and drum stick are not overly fried. They have been marinated with spices and when it fried, it looked a bit darker than usual golden. By all means get the KFC with the rice or any other food to go with it. lol.

如果你曾經到東南亞,你可能會注意到,在一些國家的人都煮黃米飯。它不是一般的自然色的大米。黃薑和其他一些香料烹飪添加的。昨天我做黃飯,想與大家分享,我做飯的方式圖片和配料。,這是我採用最簡單的方法煮。我相信在其他國家的其它地方都有它自己方式烹調的。

我們用電飯煲做飯。大米洗淨後,像往常一樣加水,並添加以下提到的所有成分。讓它跟米飯一起煮。就是這樣,容易是不是?

所需要的東西:檸檬草(一或兩個),薑黃粉(茶勺),藍姜(數切片),椰奶(小盒/可以),(但我沒有在大米中添加椰子汁。我會盡量避免。豐富的育肥椰奶),月桂葉(我沒有,所以我沒有用它)。所有這些都加入到電飯煲和已洗淨的大米一起煮。你也可以添加幾捏鹽。

我加入小塊的炸雞和幾片蔬菜和自製辣椒陪同大米吃。請享用。
