Rice back then was cooked in a traditional manner, but these days we have rice cookers which definitely simplifies the cooking process. Still, its still debatable, whether cooking rice in rice cooker is healthy. I shall refrain from dwelling on that, here's to my rice recipe (nasi briyani and pulao rice). Simply simple, this nasi bunga telang serai/ blue pea or clitoria flower lemongrass rice is naturally scented with the flower's blue shade and lemongrass (lemongrass/serai cordial).
To make this rice dish, soak and rinse about 1 cup of the flowers with 2 cups of hot water to extract its natural color after two hours. Thereafter, add it (2 cups) alongside 2 cups of washed basmati rice, 2 smashed lemongrass, salt and 1 cup of water in the rice cooker. Done.
3 cups of basmati rice - rinse and drain
1 cup blue pea - rinse, soak with 2 cups of hot water and extract its natural color (2 cups)
2 lemongrass - smashed
1 cup of water
Salt for taste
Add all ingredients in the rice cooker, gently stir, cook up and fluff up.
