Mum's Pilau Rice

To be honest, I didn't write it down, so I've probably missed out some vital ingredients, but this one works OK anyway, though I don't recommend it for everyday use as it is a bit greasy.

3 tbsp grapeseed oil
4 dl rice
8 dl boiling water

  1. Heat up the oil on medium heat.
  2. Add the rice and stir. Keep stirring until it starts getting a nice golden colour or goes transparent.
  3. Add the water and boil as per recommendation for the rice type.
So far, I've tried this with brown easy cook rice, it went rather nice with my Thai yellow curry, though not extremely noticeable.

I think I'll try swapping half the oil with butter or toasted sesame seed oil next time.
