I don't know what you mean by "southern rice."

What other ingredients are in it? What color is it? I'm clueless as to what you are looking for.

By "southern" do you mean southern USA...South American...some other southern?

Do you mean something like "dirty rice" (which is cajun) or "pecan rice" or maybe rice smothered in gravy???

Sounds like fried rice to me

I wouldn't call it a Southern US dish...at least not around here, and I'm in the South.

I would simply add some turmeric (or you could add some saffron threads if you wish) to the chicken stock when you cook the rice. Cook in chicken stock versus water. If you are using frozen peas and carrots you can heat them seperately and just toss together when the rice is done.

In reading your other dishes I'd say you should go for the dirty rice!!! It's wonderful!

It sounds like you might be talking about rice pilaf. If so, here is a good brand of yellow rice mix to use. Saffron is very expensive, and this mix tastes very good. I just saute chopped onions and carrots, and then toss in some defrosted green peas.

I agree this sounds like fried rice which would be yellow in color and contain egg, peas, and carrots. It's a Chinese restaurant staple.

I live in the south and have never really heard of any rice being typically "southern." There is a Mexican yellow rice that I'm familiar with and, perhaps, you might be thinking of that.
