Yellow rice

yellow rice

This yellow rice is served as a side dish. The yellow color comes from turmeric (curcuma), sometimes I used fresh curcuma, but this time I used turmeric powder. I added cinnamon, clove and cardamom during cooking for a perfect flavor. I used basmati rice to this recipe, you can also use other rice like, jasmine rice or wild rice with 1:2 ( 1 cup water : 2 cups water) composition.
