Creole rice is a method for cooking rice, similar to pilaf. For this preparation it is essential to use long-grain rice, such as Patna. Here's how to prepare it:
- Wash it for a long time to get rid of part of its starch, then put it in a container, covering it with water (the dose must be double that of the rice).
- Cook the rice first on the stove and then in the oven until it has absorbed all the liquid. Creole rice is generally accompanied by spicy dishes, typical of the cuisine of the Antilles.
