It’s important to know how to make rice well- this is a simple recipe with some South Indian spices. I cook my rice with chicken broth but of course water or vegetable broth can be used…

  • 1 Cup Basmati Rice
  • 2 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 tblsp Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 5 to 6 curry leaves
  • 1 tsp Salt

Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Let the spices heat up and get aromatic (careful not to burn). Add the rice and sauté in the oil and spices for a minute or so or until the rice becomes opaque. Add the chicken broth and the salt. Bring the rice to a boil and lower the flame to medium. Keep the rice half covered while it is still coming to a slow boil. Once most of the broth is evaporated, cover over very low heat.
