Spicy Steamed Rice With Cumin and Lime Juice

Spicy Steamed Rice With Cumin and Lime Juice created by Karen Elizabeth

I initially got part of this combination from a Food Network show, and have added a few things along the way. I call it "Spicy Rice" and my husband loves it. It makes normal steamed rice much less bland. The step by step process allows all the ingredients to cook into the rice. I usually take into consideration the entree I'm serving it with before I add the Cajun Seasoning. It's a personal preference. All ingredient amounts can be adjusted according to taste.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat butter in a medium to large saucepan until melted. Add rice and toast for a minute or so until the butter has been absorbed.
  • Add cumin, Cajun seasoning (if desired), and 1/2 teaspoon of the lime juice. Continue to cook, tossing rice constantly so it does not burn, until the rice absorbs the lime juice. Add the remaining lime juice and the soy sauce and repeat this process.
  • When all liquid has been absorbed, add the chicken broth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly so rice does not stick together. Reduce to low, cover, and let simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until all of the chicken broth has been absorbed by the rice. Serve hot.

    Loved it! Made with the cajun seasoning and it wasn't too spicy. Will be a favorite from now on. Thanks for posting PianoCook!

    This was good, but we didn't feel that it was very spicy and the lime flavor could have been a little stronger. Will definitely make this again and adjust the spices and lime juice to our likings. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

    Awesome rice! The smokiness of the cumin is wonderful. The only thing I changed was that I made it in the rice cooker instead as CYAOS mentioned. Could not have been easier to make and it was done in no time. Thank you for posting Vicki!!!

    This rice is great and especially great for a change from white. I followed the recipe as written the first time and it turned out great. The second time I used the rice cooker - just threw all ingredients in the pot at the same time and let it go. It was still tasty, although, oddly enough, spicier. Thanks for posting a keeper!
