“I do not like rice, but I love it this way! This is the only way I will eat it. This recipe is a spin from observing my mom's Iranian friend preparing Basmati on a stove, he added the chicken stock and I thought it added such a great flavour. My sister always prepares rice in the oven with chopped onions and green peppers, so I tried the Basmati that way. I usually serve it with Tikka Masala on top. *Note* This rice is supposed to be "al dente", that s why less water is used.”
