Butter rice

My daughter with few of her girl friends plan to have potluck party at school on every Thu, everyone need to bring one type of food from home and they will share among them. My daugter requested me to cook "butter rice" for today's party...

Butter rice



Normally I will just use the overnight rice and stir fry with butter and eggs. Since this is the last minutes request, so I adapted Wendy's garlic rice recipe which her recipe is easy and simple, the difference from her recipe is I added with more butter. Thanks to Wendy for kind sharing !!

Hi,

If we substitute Basmati rice with normal white rice, would the taste still be the same?

What side dishes would compliment with butter rice?

RO, yes, you can subsitute with normal white rice, I did it some time when i run out of basmati rice, the taste will have slight difference. The side dish to accompany with this butter rice is curry or rendang..

Mas and Moon, Thanks.

cikmanggis, ya, good choice to have it with Rendang.

Wendy, typo error, should be 5 cups, because i just agak agak only..

My Asian Kitchen, yes, this rice really smell good, kids especially like this kind of rice.
