Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
400g glutinous rice
1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric
3 large onions, thinly sliced
125ml oil
2 teaspoons salt
75g sesame seeds, lightly toasted, bruised and mixed with salt

Method

  1. Wash the rice well and drain in colander for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the turmeric over the onion in a bowl and toss lightly.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until brown. Remove two-thirds of the onion and set aside.
  3. Add the rice to the pan and stir well to coat, then add 1 litre water and salt and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed. Some people like a crust on the rice — leave the rice over low heat for 5–10 minutes longer until a slight crackling sound is heard. Serve garnished with fried onion, accompanied by the sesame seeds. Serve by itself, not with curries.
