How do I make the rice they serve in Greek restaurants?

It has big, loose, separate grains that are not at all sticky.

    Something tells me you may be thinking of orzo.

      Saute in Olive Oil or/and Butter till the grains turn chalky white then proceed with normal absorption method. Most places use Chicken base as well, use chicken stock or broth at home..
