1/3 Photos of Indonesian Yellow Rice
This yellow rice or Indonesian calls 'Nasi Kuning' usually only serves for festive occasion and shaped into a cone with different sidedish. But since I live in Slovenia, I don't wait for special day to make it. Eventhough takes time for me to cook different side dishes. I love it and my husband always has a big smile everytime I make this for the lunch =^_^=
