Rice with a Chilean Flair
From: Carol Bullock

A Chilean friend taught me how to make this. I was addicted to it for a LONG time.


  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • water
  • 1 chopped onion
  • vegetable oil (for frying)


  • 1 peeled and chopped English cucumber
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro leaf
  • lemon juice
  • salt
  • vegetable oil

Clean rice.

Cover with plenty of water and boil until done.

Drain and rinse with cold water.

Saute chopped yellow onion in bottom of deep pot.

When soft, add rice and salt and combine.

Reduce heat to low and let simmer awhile.

Prepare vegetable topping and let marinate.

Dish rice and top with vegetables.

This dish is very good with Dal Curry (another recipe I've posted on this board).
