Today I made butter and lentil rice for the first time and it turned out great. It is also very easy to make it.
In Burma, it is considered Burmese food but I will be more comfortable saying it is a Burmese food with Indian influence since we use ghee, cinnamon, and bay leaves.On special occasions like birthday or anniversaries, people make butter and lentil rice to eat with chicken or mutton curries.
2 cups of rice (I used Jasamin rice)
1/4 cups of spilt lentil (soaked in hot water for a few hours)
2 tablespoons of ghee
2-3 bay leaves
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cinnamon stick
In a rice cooker, put 2 cups of rice and 3.5 cups of water.
In a sauce pan, melt the ghee and put bay leaves, cinnamon, and lentil and stir them for 3-4 minutes.
