Jasmine Rice with Chili Oil and Scallions


2 cup Water
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup White rice
1 Tbsp. Chili Oil
2 large Green onions (thinly sliced crosswise)


In a medium sauce pan, heat the water and salt.

When the water boils, stir in the rice.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.

When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and add the chili oil and green onions.

Fold the oil and onions into the rice gently, then let the rice stand, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes
