Pilaf is a meal that comes to our table very often to accompany main courses. It is very easy and quick to cook, delicious and satisfying yet you should know some hints to cook it properly.
Put rice in hot water and wait for a few minutes. Strain the water and wash it once more with cold water. Strain the water.
Put the butter in a casserole which has a cover. Let it melt.
Add vermicelli and lightly brown them in butter.
Add rice, chicken broth tablet and salt . Stir over medium heat for a few minutes. This is to make boil all the water left on rice and make them dry again.
Add the water.
Stir once more , put the cover of the casserole on. Turn the heat from medium to high. Cook till it boils. After that turn the heat to a medium level. After a few minutes, stir the pilaf once more and turn the heat down to a low level.
When rice absorbs all the water, turn off the heat. Open the cover, put one or two paper towel sheets over the casserole (not over pilaf, be careful please) and cover it again. Wait for at least 20 minutes before you serve it.
