This was a nice rice dish. I used 3 3/4 cups of water for this. Instead of 2 tbsps. of butter, I substituted it with 1 tbsp. of oil. Since we are vegetarians, I omitted the chicken soup base as well. I did not have paprika on hand, so had to leave that out as well. I used a little more black pepper instead. This is a nice recipe. Thanks for sharing :)

My mom's parents were from Hungary. When my mom made rice this is the recipe she used. I grew up with this recipe. She always cooked this with oven breaded chicken. Love it!
