Had a big bunch of spring onions, which I needed to finish. So this simple brown rice dish becomes my lunch for today.
Use a thick bottom dish with a lid.
Chop the spring onions into two parts. This thinner stalks are kept aside and we will use the other part initially.
Wash brown rice. Don’t soak it.
Melt butter and a little oil. Fry the brown rice in this. About 3-4 mins later add the chilly flakes, garlic and the spring onions.
Mix and let it cook on medium heat for 5-7 mins.
Add the thinner stalks and mix it well. Let it cook for another 5 mins.
Now add a good amount of hot water and salt.
Cover and cook on a low flame for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile if you still have some of the stalks left over mash them in a pestle with garlic and salt.
Rub it on chicken and let it stay for 20 mins.
Then grill it on the stove or in the oven.
Pack this in your lunch box and enjoy the attention at work.
