Baked Rice Recipe

Baked rice is one of my must-order dishes whenever I go to Swensen’s, and I have always been looking for a recipe that I will like, so that if I do not have time to go to Swensen’s, I can still enjoy baked rice at home. Recently, I saw a recipe being shared on Facebook and decided to try it. I found the recipe a little too onion-ish, and decided to modify the recipe. After a couple of tries, I am happy to say that I have come up with a baked rice recipe that I like. It is different from the baked rice from Swensen’s, but it is still delicious. A few friends have asked me for the recipe, so here it is!

(The portion in this recipe should be enough to serve three to four adults.)

Ingredients:

And there you have it, my recipe for baked rice! There are a number of things to do for preparation but the cooking itself is simple. The list of ingredients can definitely be modified to suit individual taste.

I made this version of baked rice for Mother’s Day dinner and it was a hit! So happy that the family liked it. Hope you will like it too!
