If you've got any left over rice from the night before, try this. It's terribly delicious and easy. We usually eat this with our simple fish tacos we always make. Simply stir fry the cold rice with lime juice, butter, some oil and cilantro. Season with some salt. My husband loves this.
- 1 teaspoonvegetable oil or butter
- 2 tsp. fresh cilantro
- 2/3 cup white basmati rice
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 Lime
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. Stir in some more cilantro at the end.
