Yield: serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1⁄2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • Chinese chile oil
  • 1 tbsp. salted dry-roasted peanuts

Instructions

  1. In a sieve, rinse rice under cold water and let drain. Put rice, 6 cups water, and salt into a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, partially covered, until the rice takes on the consistency of porridge, about 1 1⁄2 hours.
