One of the most simple and delicious recipes my dad has taught me is how to make the perfect rice! This may seem like a straightforward food to make, however I can assure you no rice compares to how this one tastes. I find there is beauty in perfecting even the most simple of things and this recipe is one of them. I would absolutely love to know if you end up making this and if you agree that this is actually – the perfect rice!

See below for ingredients, instructions and some of my kitchen favorites! 

Ingredients –

  • Basmati or Jasmine Rice
  • 1 TBSP Butter (I love Kerrygold)

Instructions –

  1. Add 1 tbsp butter to pot. Do not turn on the stove yet.
  2. On the side, boil 1 1/2 cups water in a teapot or another pot on the stove.
  3. Have 1 cup of basmati or jasmine rice rinsed on the side ready to go on the side.
  4. Once water in teapot is about to boil, turn on the stove to high with the pot that has butter in it.
  5. When butter starts melting, add the rinsed rice to the pot and then the boiling water.
  6. Add a pinch of salt and stir the rice, water, butter together and wait. 
  7. Once you see craters start to form in the rice, cover the pot tightly, lower heat to low, and time 20 min!
  8. Once 20 minutes have passed, the water will be gone and you will have the perfect rice! Fluff gently with a fork, and serve 🙂
