BRAZILIAN WHITE RICE
This is a basic Brazilian white rice recipe, and if you follow these steps your rice will always come up perfectly well cooked, tender but not too soft, never mushy.
How To Make It
Heat oil in a thick pot over medium heat, add onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for one minute, then add rice and stir frequently for 4 minutes. Add hot water and salt, cover and cook for 8 minutes. Lower heat and let it cook for 6 more minutes until rice is dry. Fluff with a fork and it’s ready to serve. (We keep our pan on the stove to keep rice warm while we serve.)
