How to Make Spanish Rice

Did you know one interesting fact about 'Spanish' rice? Though this dish contains the word Spanish in it, due to which one takes it for granted that this is a dish of Spain, but it does not have its roots into that country. Most probably that is the reason why this dish is now made in so many different styles. Lets learn how to make Spanish rice from scratch now. More on Spanish foods.

How to Make Spanish Rice in a Rice Cooker?

* 1 - 2 tsp cumin
* 1 - 2 cups long grain rice
* 2 - 4 cups water, boiled
* 1 - 2 tomatoes, diced
* 3 - 6 cloves garlic, minced
* ¼ - ½ tsp salt
* ¼ - ½ cup vegetable oil
* 2 - 4 tbsp tomato paste
* ½ - 1 small onion, diced


First cook 2 cups of rice in rice cooker. When cooked, let it cool for about 10 minutes. In a saucepan, fry rice for about 3 - 5 minutes, at medium heat, until golden. Add in onion, salt, garlic and cumin. Saute for a minute and then add in tomato paste along with boiling water. As soon as it boils (which happens pretty quick) turn the heat to low and cook for 20 minutes, covered. More on Spanish rice recipe and rice recipes.
