Ingredients

• 1 cup long grain rice
• 1 cup water
• 1 heaping Tbsp. samneh (or other shortening)
• 1 tsp. salt
• Hot water
Preparation

• Soak in hot water for half an hour and then rinsed well to remove loose surface starch which would make the finished pilaf gummy. (Packaged, washed rice need not be further cleaned).
• Melt samneh in heavy skillet and when smoking, add rice.
• Stir until each grain is well coated. Add salt and water.
• Place over high fire until mixture boils up well and rice begins to absorb the water. Then cover.
• Lower heat and cook without further stirring until tender.
• If all water is absorbed before rice is tender it may be necessary to add 1/4 cup more water.
• Remove from fire when tender, but leave covered in a warm place for 30 minutes, or place a wire rack between a very low flame and the pan.
• Stir very gently when ready to serve. 
Additional Notes
Its a good idea to have multiple pans going at one time to make the cook ... otherwise the 2 hours could turn into a half a day. :)
