Basmati rice--a fluffy, long-grain variety--gives off a nutty, popcorn-like fragrance while it's cooking.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sauté onion in hot oil in an ovenproof saucepan 5 minutes. Add minced garlic, rice, and vermicelli; sauté 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in broth, salt, and pepper.

This is a good recipe. I have made it several times and the whole family likes it. I prefer to cook it on the stove. Instead of baking, I allow it to come to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and cook about 20 minutes. When I have baked it, it required longer than the recipe states to finish. I've made it without the parsley and it is just as good.
