Herbed butter rice with Siobak

So whats good to go with the Siobak? Plain white rice? hmmm boring... So how about herbed butter rice? Yeah... so thats what I did.


Herbed butter rice(for 1 big eater or 2 medium portions)
1 cup Thai Hom Mali rice
10g pack of unsalted butter
1-2 cups of chicken stock
1 tablespoon of raisins
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of pepper
1 pinch and a bit more of dried basil leaves

Rinse the rice only once and add in enough chicken stock to meet the 1 cup mark in the rice cooker. I have a small little rice cooker with a max capacity of 3.5 cups cos I cook for 2 most of the time and I don't really need some huge ultra modern rice cooker with fuzzy logic that would even do your laundry. Then again, it'll be nice to own one!

Dump in the rest of the ingredients and cook as usual. When the rice is cooked, fluff it up, mix the herbs and raisin evenly and keep warm for a while more to rest.

Served with siobak and it was wowee zoweee... nom nom crunch nom nom nom....

Any special homemade chilli sauce to go with it?

It already looks good by itself without any sauce.
