Total Time: 30 mins

Serves: 4


  • 2 cup rice (use the rice cup that come with the rice cooker)
  • 2 teaspoon turmeric powder (Indonesian: bubuk kunyit)
  • 1 lemongrass (Indonesian: sereh), bruised and chopped
  • 1 Indonesian bay leaf (Indonesian: daun salam)
  • 1 kaffir lime leaf (Indonesian: daun jeruk)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 100 ml coconut milk
  • 3 cup water (again use the rice cup that come with the rice cooker)


  1. Place all ingredients in the rice cooker and turn on the power. Press the "cook" or "white rice" button.
  2. When the machine indicates that the rice is ready (usually a "warm" light will turn on), open the lid, fluff the rice, remove lemongrass, bay leaf, and kaffir lime leaf.
  3. Close the lid again and let the rice rest for another 10 minutes before serving.
