Shepu was one thing I could never cook in a tasty way.
Today I did !!!!!!!!
2 bowls rice
1 cup of small pieces of shepu( washed and pat dried)
2 tea spoons butter
1/2 cup lentil beans/grean peas.
1 thinly chopped green chilli
Put rice in the vessel
Add water so that water is 1 inch above rice.
Add 2 teaspoons salt. Bring to boil. Once the water is boiling hot, and the rice is seen to be coming to top,strain the rice. The rice will still be raw.
Add butter to a deep pan. Put one layer of rice. Put the layer of peas/beans and shepu and chopped chilli. Put another layer of rice. Take a large plate/bowl. Put water in it. Cover the pan with this plate/bowl. This way the ingredients are cooked by steam.
Keep it on Medium-low flame for about 20 minutes. Do Not stir rice in between.
And you will start loving the weed !!!!!!!!!!!
