1 Cup of rice … well .. I use Jasmine rice as it feels close to the Egyptian rice (obviously I can’t get Egyptian rice from Edeka 😀 ).

1 teaspoon of Butter/ Margarine/ Olive Oil (personally I use Olive Oil).

1 tablespoon of Vermicelli pasta (Fadennudeln auf Deutsch).

1 teaspoon of salt.

Tools

  • A saucepan.
