Savory Rice



Back in the 1970’s I went to work for the Gas Company. I was a teller at the time and once a month the company printed off a free recipe card that we passed out to our customers. This Savory Rice recipe was one of those recipes that I adapted to my own taste. It is absolutely delicious and easy to make even for beginner cook!

  1. I’m always trying to make rice more interesting, and I love the idea of resurrecting some of those old “home economist” recipes from the utilities. Somewhere, I have (or had) one for a cranberry sherbet that was wonderful. Thanks for this!

  2. I make it almost the same only not with chicken broth but with real chicken and carrot chopped into small squares. A drop of Madras curry powders and butter. Is therefore a meal in its self. Again so glad you liked my blog.

  3. This sounds so good! I’m always looking for ways to make rice better because I can never quite get it to come out how I like just cooked on the stovetop and haven’t invested in a rice cooker yet 😂 this seems like it would come out perfectly and I love the seasonings…and that story of saving the recipe card!

  4. a meal staple!
    my fav of all is indian yellow rice 😄
    not sure why.
    maybe cuz im thinkin its yellow color makes it taste more buttery? 🌼

    • Interesting I never made that before! I’m pretty sure I may have had it at a restaurant but can’t remember what it tasted like. But I do like your theory of the buttery taste…lol

  5. My family used to be crazy about rice, then something happened and now only our dogs eat rice O.0 but if I show them this it might change their minds!
    Also question:
    is there a curtain type of rice u need to use for this?
