  • 2

    cup basmati rice

  • 4

    cups water

  • Bay leaf

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • Juice of a lime

  • 2

    tbsp cilantro, minced

  • 2

    tbsp oil


Saute the rice in oil until almost translucent. Add bay leaf and water, bring to a boil. As soon as the water begins to boil, turn the heat down low. Simmer, covered for 15-20 minutes, or until all water is absorbed. Turn off heat. Leave covered for 30 minutes. This is the "steaming" part, this is what makes the rice fluffy. Once done, It may be helpful to transfer rice into a mixing bowl for the next step. Mix salt and juice of lime together until salt is dissolved. remove bay leaf, pour it over rice, fluff with a fork. Sprinkle in cilantro, and toss well to evenly coat with cilantro and lime mixture. And you're done!
