So do you see how a borek is supposed to look? Really light and fluffy and golden brown; crispy and you could even smell the aroma of egg lifting off the top. It’s going to be delicious, but it’s really hot right now, what we’re going to is we’re just going to wait for that to settle down just a little bit before we cut it. And now, we’ll get started on our rice. Now for our rice today, we’re just going to use plain, good, old fashioned, white rice; it goes with everything, it’s going to go great with our chicken. I’m going to use 1 cup of washed plain rice. Now, I’m also using a mixture of corn and peas. Half a cup of corn, half a cup of peas, frozen kinds are just fine; half a stick of butter. I’m going to add a little olive oil to keep it from burning and of course salt. Okay, so first we’re going to do is just melt our butter and sauté up our rice just a little bit. Now rice goes with every meal in the Turkish cuisine. I mean it’s like having salad before every meal; we have rice almost with every meal. It’s a great part of the meal that fills it up and it helps cleanse the palate for the rest of the food that you’re going to eat. So you want this to get hot, which you could see it’s already sizzling. I’m going to take your washed rice and I like to sauté it up just a little bit before I add 2 cups of boiling water. Now our corn and our peas, they’re frozen and it’s going to be really fast to cook them up. So we can add them towards the end. Now I’m going to add my salts, sauté this up just for a minute then I’m going to add 2 cups of boiling water. Now, we’re going to cover, let simmer for about 20 minutes until all that water is soaked up. So once you this nice and light brown, we’re going to add 2 cups of boiling water. And you know, every time I like to eat rice, I always add boiling water because first of all, it heats up the rice much faster; second of all, it’s always good to add hot water anytime you’re cooking food. Anytime you’re cooking and you need to add a liquid, always make sure it’s hot or boiling. Otherwise it’ll wash away the flavor of whatever you’re cooking. So we’re just going to let this boil up, which is starting to boil up already because we put boiling water, and we’re just going to cover it, lower and let simmer for about 15 miutes.
