Plain Yellow Rice

This is one of my simplest way to cook plain yellow rice. I just used my imagination and here’s the outcome. 🙂

3 cups long grain or basmati rice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onions, chopped
¼ cup butter
½ tsp. turmeric powder


1. Wash then soak rice in cold water for 10 minutes. Drain
2. Boil enough water or about 10 cups in a cooking pot. Add salt and 2 tbsp. oil.
3. Add rice and boil for 6-7 minutes. Drain.
4. Heat butter in a cooking pot, saute garlic and onions for few seconds. Add turmeric powder and rice. Mix gently. Be careful not to break the rice grains.
5. Cover the pot, cook over very low heat for 15 minutes. Nice to serve with chicken barbeque and vegetable salad.
