1-1/2 cup long grain basmati rice
1-1/2 cup glutinous rice
1 tspn salt
1 tspn vegetable granules
1 TB white peppercorn, washed
2 slice tamarind slices / asam gelugur
2 pcs 1" fresh turmeric root, washed & sliced
2 cups water
2/3 cup fresh thick coconut milk
2 stalks lemongrass, take only the bottom part then slightly crushed
(1) grind fresh turmeric root with 80ml water till smooth then strain and set aside.
(3) now, add in water, lemongrass, asam slices & peppercorn and switch on rice cooker let to cook till done.
(4) when the rice is ready (meaning the keep warm switch will light on), at this moment, pour in the coconut milk and leave it for 30 minutes.
(5) when its done, stir to soften the rice then serve.
Note : Normal rice and water ratio is 1 : 1 But when mixing with glutinous rice, water level need to be cut down. This is to prevent the rice became too soft & sticky. However, for packet coconut milk user, you may use 1 cup measurement instead of 2/3 cup. Packet or canned coconut milk is less watery.
