Cumin Rice

God, how boring life can be? Same thing over and over, same job, same food, same husband, same wifey, same "cook with nava-k" and same boring plain white rice. Now, please, I'm not giving you any idea, especially on sneaking behind your husband or wife to be naughty horny-bunny okay? Hope I've clear here. What I want to stress specifically is white rice. At least, we know we can do something about rice compared to the rest I've mentioned. Ahem,ahem!! This rice dish is one of the easiest-simplest way of adding flavours into plain white rice. Use the rice cooker instead of being like our mothers who didn't have a choice but to cook rice over the stove. Then again, these days, mothers are trending with rice cooker too. I think they got tired of waiting and watching rice like how they are tired of keeping an eye on their husbands. That's why have you realise that its difficult to keep mum at home these days? They are actually travelling the world you know. Good for them. I'm happy for them.

So, you see I'm not wrong. Why trouble mum to do the cooking anymore when we can cook effortlessly without slyly keeping both eyes on the rice cooker. Don't worry so much. That's the main problem with women. They worry for no apparent reason, even with rice cooker which has been tuned not to play our back, back and forth back. Geetz! Okay? Alright. Here we have rice, red chillies, onion and cumin seeds, fried in oil, tipped into the rice cooker and cooked with water. Amazingly fluffy, mildly spicy and cumin scented rice, that goes well with literally any side dish (Cashew Nut Masala Chicken, Spicy Grilled Pompret/Bawal HitamSambar, Tom Yam Chicken, Belacan Fish Sambal, Pada Salt Fish Pickle & Vegetarian Mutton Curry). Take care beautiful people. I will be back soon. 

2 cups rice (wash and drain)
2 red chillies (cut into 4 pieces)
1 medium size onion (sliced thinly)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tsbp oil
3 cups water
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute onion, add chillies and cumin seeds. Stir for a minute.
Tip into rice cooker, add washed rice and season with salt.
Stir and let it cook, after which fluff up.

Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!
