1 cup of jasmine or white rice
2 tablespoon butter
1 onion chopped into small pieces
3 crushed garlic heads
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chopped basil or any other herb like, cilantro, or mint.
salt and pepper
In a thick tall pot melt the butter over medium. Add the onion and garlic stirring for 5 minutes. Grind the basil and broth in a blender. Stir the rice and add the chicken broth, salt ( Salt gets lost on the rice, put more than normal) and pepper to taste. Bring to boil then reduce to low. Cover and simmer for around 15 minutes or until done. Serves 4
