qui's basmati pilaf

qui's basmati pilaf

This pilaf is the type of pilaf my mother would always make except she would use long grain rice. It is very easy, delicious basic pilaf.

Rice cooker

1 cup white basmati rice
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Place rice in strainer or bowl and rinse two to four times. Let rice dry for 1 hour.

Set cooker on quick cook or regular. Place the butter in the rice bowl. When melted, add the rice. Cook, stirring a few times, until all the grains are evenly coated, and just golden brown and hot , about 10 to 15 minutes. Add water and slat; stir to combine.
Close cover and reset for the regular cycle.

When complete let the rice set for about 10 minutes. Fluff.
