Tonight Dinner with Jasmine! Basmathi King. Jom makan and join me for dinner. Are you a rice person? Well, rice has been a staple food source especially for us, Asians. How many of you must eat rice every day? Yes or no? Well, I can go without rice for a few days but after that I will be craving for it. For tonight’s dinner can you guess what rice I cooked using the beras basmathi?

Tonight Dinner with Jasmine! Basmathi King

Today was a busy day so I decided to cook rice at home and stop by bazaar Ramadan Shah Alam Seksyen 13 to pack some dishes on my way home. I believe many of you will do the same, especially on weekdays for working urbanites. Rice we can cook at home and dishes we tapau (take-away or pack).

Cooking Nasi Briyani using rice cooker

Let me show you how to cook briyani rice using rice cooker. Actually it’s quite easy, all I need is to fried the onions, spices, condiments and ready pack biryani seasoning (options we can add meat such as chicken, lamb or beef). Then add the basmathi rice and water. Close the lid and set to cook.

Tepung Pelita usually only available during Ramadan

While the rice is cooking, I get ready the dishes and set the table. I had Ayam Percik Indonesia, Ayam Goreng Berempah, Ikan Kunyit, Thai Mango Salad, Tepung Pelita, dates and some fruits. I guess this is more than enough dinner for 2 persons.

Nasi Briyani

Tadah! my nasi briyani turned out to be slightly brownish due to the excessive spices but nevertheless it’s rich in flavours just the way we like it. The briyani rice texture is firm on the outside, soft inside and won’t break when I stirred. The grain is longer than the normal rice and dry so it goes well with a little bit of gravy.

The dinner tonight was ready in less than 1 hour and without much hassle in the kitchen. I love the appetizing thai mango salad with the combination of ayam percik gravy and biryani rice. Overall, enjoy eating at home and trying out new recipe. May be I shall be more adventurous to cook different types of rice using the beras basmathi.

  3. We always eat rice for every meal. We cannot eat a meal without rice it seems. These special rice not too much though, maybe only for special occasions.

  4. The rice we have been using ever since is a Jasmine rice. I'm just not sure if it's the same rice as the one you featured here. We, Asians, are really used to eating rice with meals that is why I worry when I travel to the other part of the world, I might find it hard. I don't think I'd survive with just bread and pasta. Hehe.

  5. Wow, did you cook all these yourself? Haha, the long rice is very fragrant and different from the usual jasmine rice we eat...

  6. We are rice eaters, too. Like you, I can do without it for a few days, but I will be craving for it after a while.

  7. The Philippines is a rice-nation too. A meal isn't complete without rice ( although I have been trying to cut down on it ) ... I can imagine though how this spread must be so good. I love Biryani Rice. I even have mine with butter. I ate a lot of Nasi Briyani when I was in KL. I like it a lot :)

  9. I am too familiar about Jasmine rice. That we we have in our table. however, the price is much higher than locally-milled rice.

  10. Wish we had this brand in the Philippines as well! I'm so obsessed with Basmati, it's like the best rice ever! Haha! :)

  11. I used Jasmine basmathi rice before when I worked in Dubai City. The fullness and smoothness in texture are truly the best especially with khabsah.

  12. You have a lot of variety in this meal. It looks well prepared and delicious too.

  13. Basmati for the win! I have tried this rice in my cousins house (who marry a Muslim). Though Jasmine rice is a lot chewier, with more of a fruity taste, and Basmati taste grassier to me. But all in all, I love it!
