Trying my best to have rice for lunch everyday for my kids. I guess rice will keep them full until tea time rather than having buns or noodles.
This butter rice is very fragrant and goes very well with rendang chicken or beef. :P ( Eating it alone is not bad either )
Both my kids finished the whole pot, leaving nothing for their mummy!
