Rice and All Things Nice

  • basmati rice
  • broccoli
  • bell peppers
  • canned corn
  • butter
  • herbs
  • black pepper
  • salt


I wash and strain rice. In a pot, I bring water (1 1/3 cups water for 1 cup rice) to a boil.  I add salt and a piece of butter. I put rice in the boiling water, stir and cover. I cook on a low heat for approx. 10-12 minutes. I do not open the lid or stir, for the rice to cook evenly. When it is done, I take it off heat and leave covered for a few more minutes.


I clean the broccoli, cut to smaller flowers and blanch in salted water. I clean the bell peppers and chop them. I strain corn and sauté it together with chopped pepper in a little fat. I season with salt, pepper and chopped herbs. I sauté for a few additional minutes, add broccoli and rice, stir gently and serve.


When cooking basmati rice, it is best to stick to the right measurements and cooking time. When it is cooked correctly, the rice grains do not stick together, they are easily separated.


I watch out what I put in my mind and my mouth.
