How to make this recipe
In a medium saucepan, combine the rice with 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add a generous pinch of salt. Stir once, cover and cook over low heat until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let steam for 20 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
In a large bowl, mix the rice with the butter. Fold in the dill, barberries, lemon juice and shallot. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
