  • Rinse the rice: Using a strainer, rinse the rice in cold water until the water runs clear.
  • Brown the rice: In a skillet over medium-low heat, brown the rice in the salted butter until each rice grain is lightly golden brown.
  • Top with water: Add the water to the skillet, and cover with a lid. Lower the heat to low, and cook until the water is absorbed.
  • Fluff with a fork: Using a fork, fluff the rice to separate the grains of rice. Enjoy your perfect jasmine rice!
