White rice


This is the rice i use. You can find it in any ethnic supermarkets.



2 cups of water

1 cup of white rice

2 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon of salt

1 scallion

1-      Heat up 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a sauce pan. Add your salt and scallion. Let it fry until scallion turns slightly yellow.

2-      Add your water and when it boils, add your rice.

TIP: Little Haitian tip given to me by my grandma. When you add your rice in the boiled water, if the tip of the rice is over the water , the amount of water is perfect if the rice is slightly showing over the water . You will have perfectly fluffy rice. If the rice is completely submerged in water, you might have added too much water and your rice will come out mushy.

3-     Let your rice boil on high heat until the water is almost dry, then cover your sauce pan and lower your heat to low heat.

4-      After about 30 minutes of cooking in low heat, your rice should be ready to eat.
