information Our country is not favoring restaurants such as Hungry Jacks as much as Australia but we are accepting the existence of such things. So most of our food is home cooked such as many different parents they fuse vegetables into the food we eat such as the rice you saw before. Children in Sri Lanka always drink milk tea in the morning like Australian kids drinking milk. I consider our daily intake is pretty healthy. Recipes Of the Two Dishes INGREDIENTS:
2 cups rice
1½ - 2 cups thick coconut milk
4 - 4½ cups water
Salt – to taste
Wash the rice and place it in a medium saucepan with water & salt. Bring it to boil in medium heat. Cover the saucepan and cook till the rice is soft and the water is absorbed.
Do not burn the rice.
Mix little salt with coconut milk and stir it. When the rice is ready reduce the heat to low and pour the coconut milk into the rice and Mix it well. Simmer the rice and coconut milk mixer till the coconut milk is absorbed and the rice is very soft and creamy.
Taste for salt.
Off the heat, and let it cool for 5mintues.
Transfer the mixer to a wide shallow dish and flatten down with flat spoon, spatula or with a piece of oil paper. Draw lines on top surface according to the shape (diamond or square) you want and let it cool another 5- 10 minutes, cut it into pieces. Milk Rice Side dishes such as curries is optional, in my opinion it taste better and is more admirable to eat.
