 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Arborio rice (240g)
      1/2   ts           Saffron threads
    1       md           Onion, minced
    2                    Garlic cloves, minced
    3       tb           Oil
    1                    Inch piece fresh ginger,
                         -grated
    1       c            Milk (240ml)
    1       c            Plain yogurt, room
                         -temperature (1/2 pt.)
                         Salt & pepper
 
   It’s only touted as “Indonesian-style” but what the
   hay...
   
   As is the case with most Southeast Asian and South
   African yellow rice dishes, the coloring agent called
   for here was turmeric, not saffron. Yogurt appears in
   many Indian saffron dishes, however, and I suspected
   saffron would work well here.  It does.  You can
   substitute California pearl rice successfully.
   
   Heat 1/4 cup of milk and steep threads for 20 minutes.
   Saute onion and garlic in oil.  Add ginger and rice
   and coat grains well.  Add the rest of the
   ingredients, including the saffron.  Season with salt
   and pepper and cover.  Cook over low heat until rice
   is done.  Serve immediately.
