Yellow Rice


3 Cups long grain Rice
4 tbs ghee or butter
2 medium Onions, finely sliced
6 Cloves
20 black Peppercorns
12 Cardamom pods, bruised
1 ½ tsp ground Turmeric
3 ½ tsp Salt
5 Cups Coconut milk
Rampe leaf (or 4 pieces Daun Pandan)

Wash rice and drain thoroughly.
Heat butter on a saucepan.
Add onions and fry until golden brown.
Add cloves, cardamom, peppercorns, salt, turmeric and rampe.
Add rice and fry until rice is well coated with butter and turmeric (stir constantly).
Add coconut milk and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover with lid and cook for another 25 minutes or so (until rice is cooked) without lifting the lid.
