    PAFoodie's Note:

    I found the basis for this recipe years ago and have revised it over the years. Try this tasty rice with fish or chicken. I prefer to use a good quality long grain rice, especially Jasmine, but any rice will do.

    1. 1
      Heat the olive oil in a saucepan.
    2. 2
      Saute the chopped onion for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Add rice and "parch" over low heat, by stirring until the rice turns white again. Do not let the rice brown.
    4. 4
      Add the rest to the ingredients and bring to boil.
    5. 5
      Lower heat and cover with a tight fitting lid. Cook until all of the liquid is absorbed.
    6. 6
      Fluff well with a fork, replace the lid and let sit for 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Note: The rice turn translucent when mixed with the oil. Sauteing the rice greatly reduces foaming during cooking.

      So delicious!!! I've been looking for a recipe to make the dill rice from my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant at home. This is perfect - and perhaps even more fragrant! The "parching" of the rice with the sauteed onion (a new technique to me) added so much flavor. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and added chicken bouillon (used 2 tsp of Better Than Bouillon brand which I prefer over the cubes) in place of the salt. The recipe didn't specify what kind of onion so I used minced shallots and it was delicious. Dill is a really subtle herb and blends with lots of flavors so you can pretty much serve this with anything. I served it with salmon in a maple/soy/garlic sauce and it was a huge hit!

      Very good. Nice accompaniment to kebabs or grilled chicken breast.

      This recipe is a keeper! Only thing I do different is sub 2 chicken boullion cubes for the salt and pepper. It gives it an extra dash of flavor. This goes great with almost any meat and my family loves it.
