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 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 adds 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 rice to 2 cups 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 ¾ (one and three-quarters) 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.

You may continue to cook it for another minute or two then turn off the stove. Cover the pot and let it sit for a few minutes.
Place the 1 cup mix vegetables into the pot, add about 2.5 cups tap water, preheat stove and place the pan on stove until the water starts to boil; keep the water boiling for about 2 minutes then add ¼ (quarter) tsp. salt - or to your preference - and keep it boiling for 2 more minutes.
