Indonesian Spiced Rice

READY IN: 27mins
Top Review by Messy44

Loved it. Served with Crock Pot Indonesian Beef Recipe #130534. Used my rice cooker. I softened up the onions by just cooking them a few minutes in a bit of oil, then literally dumped all ingredients in my rice cooker and switched it on. Twenty minutes later - perfect. Would make again stir in chicken after done for a one dish meal. Keeper.
