Nasi Pudina (Mint Rice)


Rice again? Yes, it has to be for typical Malaysians like us. Rice, as said many a times is the love in my house. The easiest of course is cooking rice in the rice cooker and every now and then, its nice to elevate the mundane taste of rice with other ingredients. Rice goreng or fried rice as we know is the simplest form (Nasi Goreng Tom Yam & Nasi Goreng Belacan Udang) without compromising on the essential Malaysian flavors and we also have the Indian style rice dishes (Ghee Almond Rice & Pulao Rice). Boredom with plain rice pretty much said it again why I made this Nasi Pudina/Mint Rice - blend mint leaves with coconut milk, pour into the rice cooker, add washed rice and salt, gently stir and let the rice cooker do the job. Now, lets tuck into this refreshing minty aroma and creamy rice

Ingredients
2 cups white rice - wash and drain off excess water
1 small bunch mint leaves (about 1 cup)
1 cup coconut milk (can replace with cream or carton milk)
Salt to taste
2 cups water.
Method
Blend mint leaves with coconut milk till smooth.
Pour into rice cooker.
Add rice, water and salt.
Gently stir and cook. 
Once rice is cooked. gently fluff up with fork/chopsticks.
Optional: For the crunch, sprinkle roasted peanuts before serving.
