    Lainey6605's Note:

    White rice is the main side dish made in Brazil. Be sure not to let it overcook because it should come out loose and not sticky.

      I used basmati rice cause I didn't have enough of long grain rice. The taste of this rice turned out so good. Thanks Lainey :) Made for the Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7

      Excellent rice! This was very easy to make and the flavors of the onions and garlic come through nicely. I probably had the heat too low because it needed more time but it came out perfect, nice and fluffy. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-South and Central America.
