  1. Bring the basmati rice, 2 cups of water, and salt to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the fideo noodles into the skillet in a thin layer, and gently cook and stir, turning the noodles frequently, until they fry to a rust-brown color. Pour 1/2 cup of water into the noodles, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until noodles are tender and water has absorbed, 5 to 8 minutes.
  3. Gently fluff the cooked basmati rice with a fork, and lightly fold in the cooked fideo and parsley. Add salt to taste.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • If you can't find fideo noodles (a Spanish short thin pasta) substitute angel hair pasta, broken into 1-inch pieces.

SORRY BUT THIS HAD ABSOLUTELY NO FLAVOUR. HAD TO ADD FAIR AMOUNT OF SALT AND BUTTER TO MAKE IT PALATABLE. I HAVE A SIMILAR RECIPE WHICH CALLS FOR CHICKEN BROTHER INSTEAD OF WATER AND WHAT A DI...

Great. I used angel hair pasta, broken in thirds, and it worked fine. Next time, I will break the pasta into smaller pieces before cooking.

This is great when you are serving a really spicy main dish. I made Spicy Bison Balls from this site and they, indeed, where very spicy. I whipped this up to go with them and it was a perfect ...
