Garlic Coriander Rice

Easily predicted, yes it is. We Asians just love our rice (Dhal Rice &  Nasi Lemak) We love rice paired with spicy, salty and aromatic side dishes, or most to most Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng Ikan Bilis). When I say rice, not necessarily plain white rice (Ghee Rice). it can be adding some ingredients for a different type of rice dish. Either a complete wholesome meal on its own or for pairing with side dishes (Spinach Tomato Soup, Hot Masala Lentil Soup, Plantain/Valakkai Podimas,Vegetable Green Curry, Aloo Gobi, Stir Fried Vegetarian Mutton & Vegetable Raita). For me, when I decide on a  rice dish, it begins with whats in the fridge and pantry, subsequently a quick thought and then making it in a simplified manner. For this simple yet tasty garlic coriander rice - only four ingredients - basmati rice, olive oil, garlic and coriander leaves. Done!

1 ½ cups Basmati rice – wash and drain
1 small bunch of coriander leaves – shredded/chopped
10 garlic – chopped
4 tbsp olive oil (or whichever oil you like)
Salt for taste
Water (as needed) 

Fry garlic in heated oil till light brown in colour.
Add rice and continue to fry for 3-4 mins.
Tip rice into rice cooker; add water and season with salt.
Once rice is cooked, combine in coriander leaves.
Fluff up before serving.
