Plain white rice or Arroz Blanco is the perfect accompaniment to any Colombian meal. In my family we would eat white rice as a side dish with everything. For my grandmother, the coffee pot,the rice maker and the pressure cooker were all the kitchen gadgets she needed. She use to get up every morning and make coffee and white rice and keep it in the rice maker warm for the day.
