Recipe from Genius Kitchen by Allan Lee
One of Nigel’s favorite things was actually the rice at Chipotle. Since we have cilantro in the box, I thought this would pair nicely with the Sri Lankan Dal recipe.
1 tsp Vegetable Oil or Butter
2 tsp fresh Cilantro
2/3 cup white Basmati Rice
1 cup Water
1/2 tsp Salt
In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil or butter over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted. Add rice and lime juice, stir for 1 minute. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil. At boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed about 25 minutes. Add in the cilantro and fluff rice with a fork. Note from author - Some people have had success with 1 cup of water, but when I’ve made it with 2 it worked for me.
