  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 jalapeño—stemmed, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the jalapeño and onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and toast for 1 minute. Add the water and a generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the grains are tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 18 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork and stir in the cilantro. Let the rice sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Serve right away.

Make Ahead

The rice can be refrigerated overnight and rewarmed.
