basmati rice*

I have just started my very first Pinterest DIY project! I am making little yarn pom pom "flowers" that I am going to glue to wooden sticks and put them in a cute vase! I have finished making my pom poms and just need to go and buy some sticks and a vase. They are going to be super cute! Here is the project on Pinterest:

Only my "flowers" are cream, light brown, dark brown and maroon. Oh, I am so excited! I will post my very own picture when I am finished! I am also excited that I decided on this project, because in order to complete it I had to buy my very own hot glue gun! Imagine the things that I can make now. The possibilities are endless!

I really liked this recipe for basmati rice! It worked perfectly to go with my slow cooker chicken tikka masala. It will definitely be my go-to rice recipe from here on out!


Basmati Rice
from Epicurious


2 cups basmati rice (14 oz)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 1/3 cups water
1 teaspoon salt

Rinse rice in several changes of cold water until water runs clear. Drain well in a fine-mesh sieve.


Melt butter in a 4-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, then add rice and cook, stirring, 2 minutes.


Stir in water and salt and bring to a boil over high heat.


Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered and undisturbed, 5 minutes. Fluff rice gently with a fork.
