Serves: 2-3 people
Recipe: Chipotle’s website
Soaking time and cooking time: 20 + 20 mins

Ingredients you will need:

1 cup Long grain variety rice, I used Basmati
1 and 3/4 cups water
1/2 tsp oil
2 or 3 tbsp cilantro/coriander leaves
Lime and lemon juice – to taste
Salt to taste


Soak 1 cup rice in 1 & 3/4 cups of water for 20 minutes. Cook the soaked rice with 1/2 tsp oil. Soaking the rice before cooking and addition of 1/2 tsp of oil keeps the grains separate and avoids it getting mushy. I used a pressure cooker to cook the rice or you can cook in a heavy bottom pan too. For preparing the rice in pan: Bring the water to a full rolling boil, add soaked rice, cover and turn to low heat  and simmer until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.

Add salt, chopped cilantro/coriander leaves, lemon and lime juice – to taste.

Mix well and let the flavors blend in for 10 minutes before serving.
