Basmati Rice Pilaf

Basmati Rice Pilaf
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup uncooked basmati rice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


  1. Heat chicken stock in a saucepan until boiling; keep hot until ready to use.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a 2 quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion and bay leaf in the hot oil until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
