1cupdry white rice
In a pot with a snug fitting lid heat the butter or oil over medium heat until it shimmers. Add rice and fry, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
Add water and stir well. Allow water to come to a boil and add salt. Stir in spices, if using.
Turn heat to low and cover pot, leaving the lid slightly askew to keep it from boiling over. Let simmer for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit, covered for another 7 minutes. Fluff rice gently with a fork and serve.
