Melt some butter. Add in garlic, one cinnamon stick, one star anise and some bay leaves. Stir and then add one cup of zucchini and carrot. Stir for about 2 minutes. Add in soaked (2 cups) long grain rice and one tbsp mixed herbs plus a pinch of turmeric powder. Stir and add 1.5 cups water. Cover and let it cook (without stirring) for 10-15 minutes. I was using my Avon mastercook so it didn’t stick at the bottom!
I didn’t add salt to this rice so our baby can have the same rice for dinner.
The side was roast chicken – marinated for 4 hours with blended fresh grapes, dark soy sauce and some corn flour. Roasted under 160 degree celcius for 2 to 2.5 hours. I poked three sticks into the chicken and flipped over the chicken once.
