Recipe by Lainey39
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
