Burnt Rice
 n.— «The US is also not leaving anything to chance. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has cancelled a scheduled trip to the Middle East and Congo. President Bush will also be on hand should the matter require intervention at the highest level. There appears to be every intent not to let the deal become “Burnt Rice,” a term coined in reference to the two principals from the US side who have pushed for the deal—Nick Burns and Condi Rice.» —“US, India begin make-or-break N-talks” by Chidanand Rajghatta Times of India (New Delhi) July 16, 2007.
