Anyone interested in cooking java rice? They go well with barbeques. My kids love it. Here's a recipe I learned from the net. Ingredients: 6 cups cold rice 1 tbsp. finely minced garlic 1 tbsp. finely minced ginger 2 shallots, finely chopped 1 red bellpepper, finely chopped 1 tsp. finely minced lemongrass 1 pc. finely chopped chili pepper 1 tbsp. turmeric 1 tsp. salt 6 tbsps. ghee (clarified butter) Cooking Procedure: To make ghee, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until frothy. Reduce heat to low and cook the butter until cream separates from the oil. Strain the oil through a fine piece of cloth. The strained oil is the ghee. Heat the ghee in a skillet. Over medium heat, add the garlic, shallots, bellpepper, ginger, lemongrass and chili. Cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add turmeric powder, stir well to blend. Add the rice and toss well. Add salt and cook until the rice is heated through.
