The rice prepared this way can't turn out bad, it's delicious and the grains separate from each other. Many times, I eat from the baking pan directly, it's that good. Goes excellent with any meat or steamed vegetables. Try it and let me know what you think.

  • 2 cups of rice
  • 6 and a half cups of hot water
  • 1 tbsp vegetable seasoning (vegeta)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • a little black pepper
  • oil as needed
  1. The most important part of preparing rice is washing. The washing of rice changes its taste and even structure. First put rice in a larger bowl and gently wash it with water several times. Drain through a strainer.
  2. In the baking pan, add oil to cover the bottom well and heat the pan on the hot stove. Add the wet rice and stir immediately. I recommend using a non-stick pan, I use Delimano and nothing ever sticks on the surface. 
  3. Fry the rice well, the grains should start to become translucent. Turn on the oven at maximum temperature.
  4. Add the warm water to the rice and stir well, add both the vegetable seasoning and black pepper and the bay leaves. Allow the rice just to start to boil, turn off the hotplate and transfer the baking pan in the preheated oven. 
  5. Bake for about half an hour or until a thin crust forms om the surface.
