DIRECTIONS

  • If using a rice cooker, measure the amount of water for the rice only then add and mix all ingredients together. If using a conventional pot, mix all ingredients together and cover with water that measures about the width of a finger above the rice line. Cover, bring to a boil, lower heat and allow to steam for about 1/2 hour. You can check the rice and beans for doneness.
  • Traditionally, when the rice is half cooked, it's divided in half, the mung beans and onions are laid on the bottom half and the rest of the rice is then laid on top (hence "m'tubuq" meaning "layered". Cover again and continue to steam.
  • Serve with dollops of plain yogurt or date syrup (dibis).
