Cilantro lime rice


Here is my take on Chipotle's cilantro lime rice. In the Persian cuisine, different variations of herbal pilaf dishes are customarily cooked. Examples of such dishes may include but not limited to: Sabzi-polo (assorted herb pilaf), Shivid-polo (dill pilaf), and Baghali-polo (dill and fava bean pilaf). Armed  with such cultural rice heritage, inspired by Persian examples of herbal pilaf dishes, I hereby present my Persian influenced cilantro lime rice. Note that there is a similar dish in the Persian cuisine called "Geshniz-polow," with Geshniz literally meaning "cilantro." The Persian version, however, does not involve limes. 

Ingredients:
2 cups Jasmine rice
2 cups water
3.52 Oz (~100 gr) Cilantro lemon puree (recipe follows)
2 TBSP Canola oil
2 TSP salt 
1/2 Persian lime
Cilantro lemon puree:
3.52 Oz (~100 gr  cilantro (leaves and tender stems. You may only use the leaves to attain a more vivid green color; stems are however more flavorful)
4 small ice cubes
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1/2 preserved lemon
The key to achieve a vivid green herbal color is to blend cilantro with ice and oil and freeze the resulting puree. To boost the citrus flavor, preserved lemon should also be used. Note that preserved lemon is the best approach to achieve the desired deep citrus background flavor.

To a deep 1.5 to 2 Qt. saucepan, add the rice, water, oil, and salt. Bring to a boil, decrease the heat to medium low. Cook for 10 minutes or until there is no water floating on the surface. Stir occasionally, but not liberally, as over-stirring breaks the rice grains (Persian granny's rule!). Squeeze in the lime juice in, and plant the frozen cilantro cubes in a couple of different locations.

Decrease the heat to low, cover the pan, and let the rice steam for 15 minutes. Do not uncover while steaming; the generated steam is crucial to achieve good results.

When the rice is steamed, fluff up the rice and mix the colors and serve. Note that the center of cilantro cubes will keep their green color, allowing the dish to showcase a spectrum of green colors.
The herb cube recipe above, yields twice as much cilantro-lemon puree as the rice recipe calls for. I marinated some chicken with the rest by adding some lime juice, roasted garlic, and Poblano to that base. A Mexican style chicken kebab was therefore attained.
