Burmese Butter & Lentil Rice / Pe Htaw Bhut Htamin

I really love to cook and taste different cuisine around the world...This time my culinary experiments goes for Burmese cuisine, after going through many recipes and sites i have choosed few easy breezy recipes to try out..While going through those recipes, i found that most of Burmese dishes ressembles quite like our Indian dishes..Coming to this butter and lentil rice, this dish is really very easy to prepare, this rice goes for simple ingredients and the bay leaves, cinnamon stick used in this rice turned them out more flavourful ..This rice is a fabulous alternative dish to plain rice.. Its seems Burmese people enjoy this rice either with some dried shrimp relish or with crispy onions or else with rich meat curries..We had this rice simply with potato kurma and enjoyed a lot..

Burmese rice

2cups Basmati rice
1/4cup Channa dal (soaked for 4 hours)
2tbsp Butter
1tsp Sugar
Salt
4nos Bay leaves
2nos Cinnamon stick
4cups Water

Wash the soaked channadal and drain well..In a pan, add the rice , channadal, butter, sugar, salt, bay leaves, cinnamon stick and water, cover the saucepan and bring to boil, keep an eye while cooking and stir occasionally..

Put the flame in simmer and cook until the water get absorbed and the rice and dal get cooked..let them aside..serve hot with any sort curries..
