Garlic rice is one of my favorite rice recipes. It goes well with almost every meat dish. Here´s how I do it:
~ Boil 2 cups of rice in salted water. ~ Wash rice in abundant water. Reserve while you fry garlic. ~ Put 2 smashed garlic cloves (don´t remove peel) in a pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Take it to (medium temperature) stove. ~ When the garlic is fried, add the rice. Let it fry, stir once in a while so the rice doesn´t stick to the pan. Check salt and add if necessary. ~ The longer the rice fries, the harder it gets.
