Nutty Basmati Rice

Oxmoor House
Serve this simple, nutty rice alongside your family's favorite chicken or pork dish. We preferred the flavor of curly leaf parsley in this recipe rather than flat-leaf parsley. Toast the walnuts while the rice simmers so the nuts can be stirred in when the rice is done.
