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.
- 2 cups long-grain white rice
- 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 3 fresh garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 2 cups hot water
- 2 cups chicken broth
- Place the rice in a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water; set aside.
- Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Add the rice and stir until the rice begins to brown.
- Add the onion and cook for about 1 minute.
- Stir in the garlic and cook until the garlic is golden brown being careful not to burn the garlic.
- Add the salt.
- Pour hot water and chicken broth over rice mixture and stir.
- Reduce heat to low, cover the saucepan, and allow to simmer until the water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
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.
