Nasi Kebuli & Happy Call Pan

I believe some of you may have been using this popular Korean brand double side pan for your cooking for quite some time :) I never have the intention to get one as I always rely on my chinese wok and a simple frying pan. Since this is a gift from my mother-in-law, therefore I been using this Happy Call Pan to test out a few dishes like, baking, braising, frying etc :) As the pan is able to cover and lock up, it cooks up the rice pretty fast! From sautéing the spices, boiling and simmering, the cooking process took about 10-15 mins :)  Personally I loves this rice dish as tt is very flavourful yet not overpowering.

Nasi Kebuli served with Pork Floss! yumz!!!

I do not have red onion and cumin seeds on hand, therefore I substitute with some shallots & ground cumin :)
