Instructions
  1. Add the stock into a small pot and place over high heat and bring to a boil then remove from heat.
  2. To the hot stock add the saffron, turmeric, cumin, garlic, chili powder, and fish sauce and mix well.
  3. Add the dry rice to the rice cooker pot then pour in the stock mixture. Stir, cover, and set to Cook mode.
  4. When the rice cooker switches to Warm, fluff the rice with a fork. Taste for saltiness, add fish sauce to adjust, and if too salty, add a squeeze or two of lemon or lime juice.
  5. Serve as a side dish with any Asian or Indian dish.
Recipe Notes

Saffron is the pricey item but just a very small bit is used, this is an expensive spice regardless of your location. Overall, this is still a low cost dish.

Adapted from an internet recipe.

  1. I made this on 10 Dec 2017, exactly as written, and it is 100% perfect. My wife took a bite and said, that, is 5 stars. On my Go-To list.
