DIRECTIONS

  • Bring 3 quarts water to a boil in a heavy pot.
  • Rinse the rice in several changes of cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.
  • Add the rinsed rice to the boiling water and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes from the time the water returns to a boil.
  • Drain the parboiled rice well and clean and dry the pot.
  • Add the butter to the pot and cook over low heat until melted.
  • Stir in the coriander seeds and pepper.
  • Add the parboiled rice to the pot, making a mound in the center.
  • Use the handle of a cooking utensil to make 5 or 6 holes in the rice, all the way to the bottom of the pot.
  • Lay the lemon zest over the top of the rice.
  • Cover the pot with a kitchen towel and a lid, folding the edges of the towel up over the lid (to keep the towel from burning).
  • Cook rice over low heat, undisturbed, until the rice is tender and a crust has formed on the bottom of the pot, about 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let rice stand, tightly covered and undisturbed, for 30 minutes.
  • Spoon the loose rice onto a serving platter and garnish with the lemon zest.
  • Season with salt to taste.
  • Break up the crust and scatter it over the rice. Serve warm.
