Kurds cannot survive without rice, and we have tons of ways of making it. This is the absolute easiest way and it always turns out great great great.
One glass of rice is enough for two people. Wash until water is clear <- important!
Throw in a casserole with too much water which you have salted to taste and let boil up, and let boil until you see the rice starts “growing” like the image above. Taste to see if it’s soft enough. It should take about 10 minutes but start checking at about 7 minutes. If they become too soft, then you’re screwed.
When soft enough, turn the heat down to almost minimum, and start heating up around 1 dl of oil in another pan. Time to remove the water from the rice. Shake well until all is gone and throw back in the casserole.
When the oil is warm enough (it should be really really warm), you toss it over the rice.
Mix so the oil hits all the rice and lid it with a towel under so it soaks up the steam. Let stay on the low heat with lid over for about 10 minutes and you’ve got perfect rice.
