|Cilantro Lime Rice|
Basmati rice-1 cup
Water-1 & 1/2 cups
Salt to taste
Lime juice - 6 tsp
Finely chopped cilantro / coriander leaves -3/4 cup
Olive oil - 2tsp
Wash the rice and put it into a pressure cooker,pour water add salt and pressure cook till done.Cool and open the lid.You can also cook the rice in open pan.( Then water ratio would be 1 cup rice and 1 & 3/4 cups water)
Add butter to the hot rice and fluff it up with a fork.
In a blender/food processor or by hand chopper blend cilantro,garlic and oil until finely minced.I like it a bit smooth paste.
Add the blended mixture to the rice and mix gently,lastly add the lime juice,toss everything well.
Serve this rice with kabob,grilled vegetables or meat or with any Mexican dishes.
