This is a very simple recipe but very flavorful and different way of serving rice, a good accompaniment to grilled meats like the joojeh chicken above.
2 cups jasmine or long grain rice
4 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups water or chicken broth
In a pan, melt the butter and add the rice; stir until the rice gets slightly browned and smells toasted. Add the salt and liquid, stir and cover until it comes to a boil and turn it down to low. Do not lift the cover. Let it cook on low heat and covered for 20 minutes. Fluff up the rice before serving.
