RINSE THE RICE
Place the rice into a fine mesh strainer and rinse with cold water (tap water). Wash the rice for about 20 seconds until the water runs clear. This will help get rid of the dusty starch and prevent the rice from being too sticky.
Add water into a medium size nonstick cooking pot. The amount of water needed will be based on the type of rice you use.
- White Basmati rice: for 1 cup (6 oz.) of rice add 2 cups of water.
- White Long Grain rice: for 1 cup (6 oz.) of rice adds 1 ½ (one and half) cup of water.
If you will be using other types of rice, a ratio of 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water (which you can scale up or down depending on how you like your rice) is usually followed but always check the instructions on the packaging to see the recommended amount of water for the type of rice you’ll be cooking.
Place the pot and put the stove on medium heat. Add 1 tsp. butter, ¾ (three-quarters) tsp. salt - or to your preference - and 1 ¼ (one and quarter) tsp. Tahoon - Kidra Yellow Rice Spice (Saffron Rice Spice) - or to your preference - to the water, cover and keep it on medium heat until the water boils.

Add 1 tsp. butter - or to your preference - on top of rice then cover the pot and let it rest for a few minutes (about 5 minutes) to get the flavor.
