Brazilian Rice

From my personal Simple Rice Recipe Collection

This is a simple rice recipe from Brazil.  It is used instead of plain rice. Use it with well seasoned curried dishes.

This recipe is easy to make and can be made under half hour.

Ingredients   -      Serves  4-6
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium-sized onion, thinly sliced
12 oz. [2 cups] long-grain rice, washed, soaked in cold water for 30 minutes and drained
2 tomatoes, blanched, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 pints [3 1/8 cups] boiling water

Preparation

  • In a large saucepan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and fry, stirring constantly, for 5 to 7 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent but not brown. Add the rice and fry for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the tomatoes and salt. Cook for 2 minutes and then pour in the boiling water.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and all the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Turn the rice into a warmed serving dish and serve immediately
