Brazilian White Rice

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
