Comes out perfect! It is now my favorite way to make rice!

Great rice. I've made this twice now. My kids love it! The second time I cut the salt by half and used one tablespoon of butter.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I buy my Jasmine rice in bulk and keep it in a different container so I don't have the cooking instruction. The only thing I change when making this is to use coconut oil in place of the butter; it is a healthy fat and gives a delightful flavor that compliments most dishes.
