SERVES 6 , 3 cups

  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 tablespoon corn oil or canola oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 carrot, diced small
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced

Heat oil over medium heat.

Add garlic, but don't let it brown.

Add rice and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Add 2 cups water, cook uncovered and get a strong boil going for a couple of minutes.

Add carrots and salt to taste, reduce heat to low and cover for 10 minutes.
