Yellow Rice (Geelrys)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by momaphet

An easy side dish also known as funeral rice. Everyone's stove top produces different heat, adjust cooking temps as you normally do for rice. I like to substitute low salt chicken broth for the water. Use your favorite rice except for brown.

This rice was relly delicious and colorful!
I used only the first tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 3/4 water as I used basmati rice.
The flavor was perfect and looks wonderful. Thanks for this great recipe!

  3. Turn burner to lowest temp, add the raisins, cloves, salt, turmeric, and ginger.
