DIRECTIONS

  • In a pot, melt 1 tbs of butter.
  • Add 1 cup white rice and fry it, almost continuously stirring with a spatula until some rice grains begin to brown (watch carefully, it can burn easily at this point).
  • Quickly add 2 cups of boiling water (this will create a giant puff of hot steam).
  • Add salt, if using.
  • Cook with the heat on high until it starts boiling.
  • Put the lid on, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
  • Wait 5 minutes with the heat off, keeping the pot covered.
  • Serve and enjoy!
