A little bit of salty and a little bit of sweet makes the perfect combination for this basmati rice. You can cook it, freeze it, and reheat it all in the same Ziploc Endurables® Medium Container. Simple as that.
cup basmati rice
Tbsp. virgin coconut oil
tsp. minced fresh ginger
cups very hot tap water
cup dried currants
cup golden raisins
green onions, sliced
tsp. ground cinnamon
cup chopped roasted salted shelled pistachios
Get a pot of water ready to later cook the rice by first selecting a pot that is just a bit larger than the Endurables® Container. Then, fill with water to about 2 inches below the top rim of pot. Bring water to a boil.
Meanwhile, with zipper open microwave the rice, oil and ginger in Endurables® Container on a microwave-safe dish for 1 min. on HIGH; stir. Continue microwaving 1 to 2 min. or until rice is lightly toasted, stirring after each minute.
Add the 2 cups water and all remaining ingredients except pistachios to the rice. Squeeze air from Endurables® Container ; close zipper. Use tongs to carefully add the Container to the pot of boiling water, pressing the Endurables® Container into the water with tongs to completely submerge under the boiling water.
Cook 30 min., adjusting the heat as necessary to keep the water at a gentle boil.
