    ekives's Note:

    This one came from my mother-in-law. We eat lots of rice here in Brazil, and this recipe is an easy and tasty variation on the Brazilian pilaf.

    5. 5
      Turn the heat to low and put the lid loosely on the pan.

      We have been making this rice for ages together. I had "ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA" that this is a variation of Brazilian pilaf! WOW:) I have made rice this way also by substituting the water with Maggi vegetable broth with onions. Its DELICIOUS!!! This is an easy and wonderful side dish! Thanks for posting! I can't stop smiling thinking that this is a variation of Brazilian pilaf;)

      Oh gosh this is really a good way to make rice. I got this recipe from my uncle who also lives in Brazil.He grows rice on one of his ranches. I like to fry chopped onions into it also as a side dish for meats. Thank you.

      Made this tonight as a side for my BBQ pork ribs. I rate it 5 for ease of preparation and 3 for flavor, so 4 overall. I used basmati rice because I had it on hand, gave it a nice nutty flavor. I cooked the rice until pretty much all of it was golden brown and then added the water, be careful it boils big time when added. I may try it again with the long grain rice to see if I enjoy it any more. I enjoy trying new recipes so thanks for posting it Ekives.
