My version deviates from the original malay version. I cook this in the way I know..using regular thai Fragrant rice.



Ingredients
4 cups of rice(washed, drained)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
60ml corn oil
1.5 tsp salt


Spice mix
1 tsp cloves
2 pcs of star aniseeds
1 pc cinnamon stick
1 tsp black mustard seeds
70ml water

enough water to cook the rice in rice cooker

Method
1. Heat up wok and add spice mix to dry fry till mustard seeds starts to pop like pop corn.
2. Add oil and rice and fry for 2 mins over high fire.
3. Add turmeric powder, salt and 70ml water, stir till all the rice is evenly coloured in powder. Fry till the water dries up.
4. Put rice into a rice cooker and add water to cook.*
5. When done, fluff up the rice, serve hot.

**
I use MW Oven to cook my rice.
For 4 cups of rice, I add 4.5 cups of water
Into a Corningware Casserole, covered.
MW on HIGH(100%) for 25 mins.
When its done, remove and fluff up the rice with a pair of chopsticks.

yah lor. You know i am very lazy to exercise too. exercise Its alot more healthy without the coconut milk. That is why I say mine is different from the traditional way to make it.

The uncooked rice that is fried with oil and spices is a MUST. It makes the rice look grainy but cooked through after it cooked in the rice cooker.
