Know What you Eat - Green Onions, Scallions are actually baby onions picked before a large bulb has formed. Don't confuse them with spring onions, which have larger bulbs.

Preparation Time - 15 min

Broccolli florets - 1 cup

1) Soak rice in water for 30 mins.
2) Boil water in a pan(for each cup of rice I used 1 3/4 cups of water) add rice, 1 tsp oil, 1 tsp of salt and wait for few minutes for it to cook.
3) Watch carefully and once the rice is cooked, remove from stove and pour cold water and put in a colander for it to drain completely .
4) Make sure the rice is not overcooked and each grain is separate, if it is overcooked this dish will not come out properly.
