Baked Persian Rice

Baked Persian Rice created by Chef Mommie

A wonderful blend of flavors. I love rice, but my husband is not fond of it plain so I look for flavorful ways of preparing it and he really enjoyed this. I used jasmine rice, which is a long-grain but cooks much like a short-grain, and I left mine in the oven for almost 1 1/2 hours to get the golden crustiness I wanted. I like the fact that this can be baked unattended while the rest of the meal is being prepared, eliminating some of the last minute dinner prep. This was improvised from a recipe in The Cook's Bible by Christopher Kimball.

    This was a toss up in our house. I have to say that I enjoyed this alot better than dh. He must be getting picky in his old age. He is a rice lover, so I don't know why he had a problem with it. My ds seemed to enjoy it very much too. In making it, I decided to go with the jasmine rice. It was my first time using it. My rice had alittle crunch to it, making me think it didn't get done enough. I made this recipe for PAC Spring 2006. Thank you Gayla!
