Savory Rice Recipe

Ingredients :

1 1/4 cups

2 teaspoons

2 1/2 cups

1 teaspoon

Long grain rice


Hot water


Method :
  • Wash rice well if necessary.

  • Drain in colander for 30 minutes.

  • Heat ghee in a heavy-based saucepan with a well-fitting lid.

  • Add rice and fry, stirring for about 2 minutes.

  • Add hot water and salt, stir and bring quickly to the boil.

  • Turn heat very low, cover tightly and cook without lifting lid or stirring for 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Lift lid to allow steam to escape for a minute or two.

  • Then lightly fluff up rice with fork, taking care not to mash the grains, which will be firm and separate and perfectly cooked.

  • Dish up using a slotted metal spoon rather than a wooden spoon, which will crush the grains.

  • Serve with curries or other spiced dishes.
