Days when I don’t feel like eating plain-looking rice, I just add some turmeric and some herbs and voila some sumptuous bowl of steamed rice 🙂
1 cup of rice – the non clinging type, we aren’t making ugali
2 cups water
salt to taste
1 teaspoon of turmeric
2 teaspoons of dried parsley
Remove any chaff from the rice, then wash it thoroughly.
In a sufuria add in your rice and all the seasoning (salt,turmeric and parsley).
Stir till they are incorporated.
Then add in your water, preferably hot. I used cold.
Cover slightly and let it simmer.
I felt a bit naughty and went against all rules from my mother about rice cooking and stirred it just before the water had completely evaporated. I read somewhere it helps in making the rice fluffy.
I covered and let the water to completely evaporate.
