Pondicheri’s Pop Masala available for purchase here!
Makes 2-4 side servings
1 cup basmati rice
1.5 cups water
1 tsp salt
2-3 Tbsp olive oil or ghee
1 tsp Pondicheri Pop Masala
Rinse the rice gently 2-3 times then let it soak for 1-2 hours. Drain.
Combine the drained rice, water and salt and bring to a boil
Turn the heat down, cover the stockpot and reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for another 6-8 minutes until all the water has disappeared.
Heat up the olive oil or ghee in a small pan, and when the oil is just shy of smoking add the pop masala. It will pop and sizzle, and within 2-3 seconds stir it into the rice. Serve warm or at room temperature.
