  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 1/2 cups of broth beef, chicken or lamb
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of salt

Add broth and bring to a boil, cover and cook 20 minutes over low heat.

Anecdotes : In Malaysia, rice to ghee is served during the festivities of Kenduri. Today, we prefer the tomato rice due to a lighter taste. In India, it is called nei saadam (in Tamil) because it is seasoned with fried ingredients with the nei (ghee).
