- For the perfect rice, use 1 to 1-1/4 cups of water for each cup of rice.
- If you prefer stickier rice, add more water.
- Be sure to use Jasmine rice, instead of Basmati for stickier rice.
- If you love dill, you can use as much as one cup of fresh dill in this recipe.
- Dill weed should not be used to replace the fresh dill in this recipe. It won't do the recipe justice.
- If you're not worried about calories. Add an additional tablespoon of butter.
