Java Rice

A plate of java rice, garnished with spring onions.
A coworker and I once argued about why our rice breakfast is yellow. She's been really curious about the color. I told her it's margarine and butter that made it yellow and she was not convinced. The staff approached us and asked what's our problem and then we both asked what they put on that rice. She smiled and said it was butter and annato seeds. Haha! I won the debate. Lol!

But making this food is a challenge for me. Annato seeds are not just natural food coloring for most dishes. It also enhances the flavor. Let me show you how to make java rice with annato seeds.
