Nasi Pudina (Mint Rice)


Nasi Pudina, aka Mint Rice. What should I possibly say please? You tell me? Perhaps best for me say that its a rice dish which has already been categorized as another of Nava K's cooked in the rice cooker rice dish and of course, rice is a crucial and most probably one of it we Malaysian can't survived without with. For me personally, I need my daily doze of rice. Otherwise, my food life may crumble and fall apart. Rice is in fact a must no matter what, but it can't be plain white rice daily and must be cooked in our Malaysian style (Malaysian Fish Head Curry & Malaysian Fried Rice). Furthermore, if you allow your cooking invention to fly high up, you can coin so many, various types of rice dishes. The known ones or in your own way for making a name as a rice dish inventor (Coriander Rice, Tomato Rice, Ghee Rice, Nasi Dagang & Curry Leaves Rice). Above all, even a few of our kitchen staples can make a huge and vast difference to the outcome of a satisfying rice dish. Alright, enough said and this minty and creamy outcome of coconut milk and me adding some peanuts for crunch Nasi Pudina/Mint Rice I sincerely believe will enliven your food senses (Cumin Rice, Nasi Lemak, Turmeric Rice, Rice Pilaf & Dhal Rice).

Ingredients
2 cups white rice - wash and drain off excess water
1 small bunch mint leaves (about 1 cup)
1 cup coconut 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 some roasted peanuts before serving.
