Like the idea of adding Butter or Ghee.
I expect it adds a little flavor to the rice itself ?
DARTH.
Yes it does add a little flavour but it also gives it a slight stickiness ( not too sticky) which you sometimes find in restaurant rice.
Include the Butter/Ghee and the spices including Star Anise and I don't think you could make a better rice than this. At least we can get some things spot on!!

Prior to selecting Darth's pilau rice for my first attempt, I considered several other recipes. The only other one including star anise was Pat Chapman's in one of his first books, but hidden away and not even called pilau rice!

Anything can be improved but, as far as I'm concerned, pilau rice can now be 'signed off' as perfectly adequate, e.g. if I was aiming to open an Indian take away.

Darth....I haven't tried this recipe yet as im a bit confused.....
I've been reading this recipe over and over again, and wonder why the spices are added after the rice is cooked?

Wouldn't it be better to add the spices when starting to cook the rice so the flavour is put into the rice?
or is the a specific reason to do it this way?
Regards
John

Yes Ive tried the other way !!! ;D
When you wash the Rice to cool it several times you rinse away all the taste so it becomes rather superfluous putting the Spices in at the begining.
Believe me & the others that have used my method. ;)
You have my word as a Dark lord, that i would not post a recipe unless Ive tried it several times, as there are a small percentage of individuals on this forum who disregard my work here purely because of our personality clashes,
So John go for it my good man, & soon you will be making Excellent "Curries & Rice from the darkside !"
Also i don't just sit waiting for other members to post their efforts i really do experiment a lot with all my dishes with a large margin of success .
And now for some silliness.

That's silliness? No way. That's what I ordered for my last Balti.

Kuldeep, double badger, double mushroom and double snake. Oh no, wait, hold the snake!
