The other day, my mom said: 有时候煮饭可以放黄姜粉下去 (Can add some turmeric powder when cooking rice sometimes).
So, that’s what I did today. After washing two cups of my multigrain rice and adding the correct portion of water, I added a healthy shake of turmeric powder into the water and mixed them all up.
I was shocked that what seemed to be a little bit of these yellowish powder turned the entire bowl of water into heavy yellowish color.
These all went into the rice cooker to cook as per normal procedure. The end result?
Ta daaaa~ My homemade multigrain nasi kunyit (turmeric rice)!
The first few mouthful felt awkward. I mean, this isn’t a taste that I am used to. It most definitely does not taste like the usual nasi kunyit that you get from Malay restaurants. Still, you get used to it. In fact, after the initial few mouthfuls, I got used to it and began to… like them.
What? What did I have to go with the rice? That’s not the point today. I really just wanted to show you the rice.
Another round of baked fish/tomato/veggie to go with the rice. That’s all we need, isn’t it?
I’m actually halfway through the meal now. When I was a kid, my mom wanted us to stay at the dinner table and focus on eating during meal times. She used to scold us for eating while watching TV. Of course, that’s exactly what we loved to do. What the adults say no to, that must be the right thing to do.
Of course, I don’t have a TV now, so I no longer eat while watching TV. But I wonder how she will feel if I am eating while blogging.
I better get back to dinner. Bon Appetit!
