Cooking simple white rice can be quite challenging for lots of people. This is a simple recipe that can hopefully be helpful.


  • 2 cup rice (Egyptian white rice) - أرز
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil - زيت عباد الشمس
  • 1 teaspoon butter - زبدة
  • 2.5 cup boiling water - ماء ساخن
  • 2 small cardamom (optional) - حبهان
  • salt (to taste) - ملح

Step by step

  1. Wash the rice and leave in a sieve to drain. Boil water in the kettle.
  2. In a medium pot, melt butter with oil. Add rice and stir for a couple of minutes on medium heat.
  3. Using the same cup used to measure rice, add 2.5 cups boiling water, salt to taste, and cardamom (if using any).
  4. Let it boil uncovered on medium heat for 3 minutes.
  5. Cover pot and lower heat to a minimum, and leave to cook. Don't uncover the rice too often while it is cooking, so you don't let the steam get out. Uncover rice after 25 minutes and use a fork to check if the rice is cooked through. If you feel it's not tender, cover and leave to cook a little longer until cooked through.
