Now, leave the room! Resist the temptation of stirring the rice like in a traditional risotto. Let the low heat do its job. Leave the lid a bit open giving room to steam. Add water if needed.
When ready (rice al dente) remove from the heat, close the lid, and let the "carreteiro" rest for another couple of minutes. The cooking processes should take around 15-20 min. Remember, no stirring. The rice should be loose but moist.
Serve with the freshly chopped parsley or spring onions and hard boiled egg.
