I was taught to make spanish white rice when I was in my teens by best friends. I have been making this rice for a long time now and love it. Love you Jackie
4 cups of white rice (I use Goya medium grain)
3 tbsp. oil
1 to 2 tbsp. salt (or to your taste)
Water (enough water to cover the rice and about an inch over)
Put oil into a medium pan and heat oil on medium high. While oil is heating wash the rice with water and drain. Do this about 3 times or until water from rice is clearer.
Once the oil is heated add in rice to the hot oil. Be careful as it will splatter.
Add in water enough to cover the rice with an inch over the rice.
Put in the salt and stir to mix until salt is well incorporated into rice
I seen this done on a YouTube channel I watch @Sweetsandbeyond. If the spoon stands without falling then you have the correct water to rice ratio.
Cook on Medium high until water absorbed
Then lower heat to low and put a lid on the pot.
Let this cook about 45 minutes or until rice is done.
Ready to serve
