Shown in this picture with my Chicken Kofta Kebab Recipe

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup basmati rice (use the rice you wish I just love the taste of basmati rice)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 table spoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Chopped cilantro to taste (I used about a 3/4 cup)
  • Juice of 1 lime

Add water, 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt to a medium pot and bring to a boil. Add rice, cover and simmer about 15 minutes until water evaporates. Add rice to bowl and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, lime juice, and cilantro. Mix until well combined and serve!
