    Dannygirl's Note:

    I do not like rice, but I love it this way! This is the only way I will eat it. This recipe is a spin from observing my mom's Iranian friend preparing Basmati on a stove, he added the chicken stock and I thought it added such a great flavour. My sister always prepares rice in the oven with chopped onions and green peppers, so I tried the Basmati that way. I usually serve it with Tikka Masala on top. *Note* This rice is supposed to be "al dente", that s why less water is used.

      I found this to be bland. Needs garlic and spices maybe. Also I had the double the water to cook the rice.

      I could not believe how wonderful this recipe was. I always have trouble with basmati rice for some reason, but this turned out great. I did end up using 2 cups of rice. Also, instead of putting the butter on the rice in chunks, I melted several tablespoons of butter mixed with 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and then added it to the water. I added 2 Magi cubes (chicken bullion) to this liquid and heated it on the stove until the Magi cubes dissolved. I then poured the liquid over the rice. I also added one minced onion and several green cardamom pods for added flavor. I followed the advice of one reviewer and cooked the dish at 350, stirring and adding more liquid at 20 and 40 minutes. I then cooked the dish for an additional 15-20 minutes. It turned out wonderful. Everyone loved it. Thank you so much for sharing!
