In another saucepan, meanwhile, boil the broth and once at boiling point, lower the heat until it slowly simmers. Add ½ a cup of broth to the rice constantly stirring. Cook the rice until the broth is fully absorbed. Once done again add ½ cup broth to rice continuously stirring and cook until absorbed again.
