- Cooking the rice
In a hot sauce pot with oil, add the onion, garlic and ginger. Sweat until cooked through. Add the rice and continue to cook for an additional minute. Add the infused stock and then transfer to the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork and adding the lemon juice. Serve immediately.
If you have trouble finding keffir lime leaves, you can always replace them with lemongrass or lime zest.
