Print this Recipe    Basmati Rice

Quantity serves 3-4 people as an accompaniment

300g (10 1/2 oz) Basmati rice
550 mls (1 pint) cold water
1/2 teaspoon salt (if you want)

Do NOT wash the rice! Put it on a large plate and pick it over,
removing any strange looking bits, small stones etc. Put the rice
and cold water - with the salt if used - into a large saucepan with
a well-fitting lid. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and
simmer for 10 minutes, then take the pan off the heat and leave it
to stand for 5 more minutes, all without taking the lid off! Fluff
the rice gently with a fork before serving. In my experience,
Basmati tends to be a little more yielding in texture than regular
long grain rice, but this is not a cooking fault.
