Tasty Rice!

"1, Leave the steamer in the cupboard!

Melt 1 tbsp. of butter in a medium saucepan, add 1 diced small to medium sized onion and fry til translucent, add one tsp. of ground cumin, one tsp. of turmeric or a few threads of saffron and one tsp. of salt, stir in one cup of rice, stir it enough to coat the rice with the butter then add one and three quarter cups of water, bring to boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about twenty mins or til water is absorbed.
When water has been absorbed remove from heat and let stand covered for about five mins., fluff with a fork and serve.

Enjoy!

Rice

Brendan, one subtle variation for flavouring rice which I love and often make, is lemon rice. It is especially nice with cooonut chicken (chicken cooked in coconut milk). I add long strips of lemon rind and several squashed cardomom pods ( I love cardomom flavour and so use at least 6-8 pods per 300g rice) to a tablesp olive oil. Cook for 2 mins. then I add 300g basmati or jasmine rice and salt to taste and stir well. Add 450ml water, bring to a boil, cover and simmer 10-12 mins until all the water has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and leave for 5-10 mins. Squeeze in the juide of half a lemon before serving. I love to experiment and add different spices to rice with turmeric to colour it yellow.
Add scrambled eggs, chopped spring onions, sesame oil and soy sauce to cooked rice in a wok or frying pan for delicious Chinese fried rice.
Good luck with your experimenting.
