Nasi kuning (Indonesian Yellow Rice)

This version of yellow rice would make a great side dish or quick lunch. I got the recipe from an Indonesian cooking book that I bought on sale at Half-Price Books!

I haven't been cooking many new recipes lately - I've actually been using previous blog posts to cook some favorites, like Honey Wheat Bread, Pierogie Pizza, and Breakfast Quesadillas (not that you need a recipe). Too busy reading Game of Thrones for much fancy cooking. I did make these chocolate oatmeal cookies, but I didn't write them up. They were good!

From Indonesian: Exotic Dishes from Empal daging to Nasi goreng for Creative Cooking

1 tbsp vegetable oil 

1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander 
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 3/4 cups long-grain rice
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
4 curry leaves (or 1 tsp curry powder)
1 cinnamon stick

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the turmeric, coriander, cumin and rice and stir for about a minute over medium heat.

2. Add the coconut milk, water, curry and cinnamon stick and bring to a low boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-12 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed by the rice. 

3. Turn off the heat and cover the saucepan. Remove the curry leaves and cinnamon stick and serve. 

Serving ideas: 

  • mix with peas
  • thai basil
  • chicken, pork, tofu...
