1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp sweet paprika
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp saffron threads
1 sticks green onion
1. Rinse and drain the rice 2-3 times to get rid of the excess starch

4. Place the pan back to medium heat. Add the chili oil followed by the onions and sauté for 3-4min
5. Add the garlic and toasted spices. Sauté for a couple of minutes. Then, add the broccolini and sauté for another couple of minutes
