Pea and sweet onion rice

You must use this as the base for Burmese chicken booyah.  The sweet onions and peas are the perfect accompaniment to this rich and flavorful curry!  Because of the texture and mild sweetness, it marries well with many of my favorite indian and thai dishes.  I know you will love what it does for your Asian cooking, so give it a try!

Servings 4-6 (depending upon the size)

Stir the rice well.  Cover and cook for about 30 seconds and then turn the heat down to low.  Cook for another minute and turn the heat off.  The rice will be ready in about 30-35 minutes.
