  1. Collect all the necessary ingredients.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a rolling boil. Add the rice, onion, olive oil, turmeric, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. Stir well to combine.
  3. Cover the saucepan, lower the heat to a simmer, and cook until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, approximately 20 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, fluff the rice with a fork before serving.


  • – For a richer flavor, you can substitute chicken broth for water.
    – If saffron is unavailable, you can use a pinch of saffron powder as an alternative.
    – This rice pairs well with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, and seafood dishes.

Can I use brown rice instead of white rice?

Yes, but the cooking time will need to be adjusted as brown rice takes longer to cook.

Is there a substitute for saffron?

While saffron provides a unique flavor and color, you can use turmeric alone for color if saffron is unavailable.

Can I make this dish ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the rice ahead of time and reheat it before serving. Just add a splash of water to keep it moist.

How can I store leftovers?

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop with a little added water.
