Rice water is a very rich source of carbohydrates. This is usually discarded. I found this recipe in a food community. And one of the easiest dish to make. This can be used as soup when sick by adding powdered pepper.
Rice Water- 2 cups
Green Chilli- 3-4
Curry Leaves- 10
Jeera (Cumin seeds)- 1/2 tsp
Mustard- 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Ghee- 2 tsp
Salt to Taste
1. After the rice boils completely take the water which accumulates at the top (instead of discarding it).
2. Boil the water with green chilli, curry leaves and salt.
3. Season it with Cumin seeds, Mustard, Ghee and Asafoetida.
