Step 1: Rice: Measure, Wash, Push a Button and Forget It.

3-4 cups uncooked jasmine rice
1 lime
1/2-tsp salt
2 T canola oil
1 half bunch fresh cilantro leaves
rice cooker

The rice for this recipe needs to be a bit drier to have the correct consistency. If the rice is too wet, it will break when mixed and be sticky. The ideal rice to use is Basmati, however, I used Jasmine rice with no problems.

Step 2: Chop, Squeeze, Mix and Enjoy!

This dish is best served the first day. The next day the rice might be a little dry. Simple add a little water and gently reheat. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did... I ended up eating at least 4 cups right away. And yes, I had a stomach ache. But I was happy :)
