  • Add rice and stir it.
  • Add warm chicken stock, milk. Mix well, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  • When there is no liquid left at the bottom of the pot( tilt slightly to check if any liquid remaining at the bottom), take the pot off the flame. Let it rest for another 10 minutes.
  • Add broccoli florets. Gently mix everything. Sprinkle cheddar cheese, cover for another 5 minutes and let the cheese melt.
  • Serve warm. Enjoy!!
