A lovely steamed tumeric rice with corn which I prepared. It goes so well with any curries that you like. I have prepared a simple curry with an assortment of vegetables with some mock chicken meat. The curry is very easy to prepare with the use of my Multi Purpose Vegetable Sambal paste [Here].

Here, I will be sharing the recipe in detail. I will roughly list the ingredients and you may create a near similar dish to go with the tumeric rice. This tumeric rice is seasoned with some salt and tastes good with the sweet corn kernels. You may add some black pepper if you like. The curry is flavoured with salt, sugar and lime juice.
Tumeric With Corn Rice Ingredients 
[serves 2]
150 gm plain white rice - washed and drained
1/2 cup corn kernel
juice of 1 calamansi lime
1/2 tsp tumeric powder

  1. Combined lime juice, tumeric powder, salt and water in a cup.  Mix well.
  2. Wash and drain rice.
  3. Transfer to a steaming tray.  Pour in water.  Stir to mix well.
  4. Steamed over boiling water for 20 minutes, give it a good stir to mix well.  Turn to low heat and continue to cook for 5-10 minutes.  Off heat.
  5. Leave rice for a further 10 minutes before fluffing.
  6. Serve with curry.
