Basmati Rice

Cooking Basmati Rice is same as boiling Pastas.

  2. Boil plenty of water aboce boiling point. probably double or thrice the amount of rice

    I thought I had read somewhere about after the rice is boiled, to then put it in the oven….is this a personal suggestion or a common method?

    Hi Angie
    Well that is personal suggestion,however, if you think that the rice is undercooked, you can still place it in the oven. And for boiled rice, you dont have to. Boiled rice is to be boiled with Water. If you have a Rice cooker, you can cook it in that too. But its just personal preferences.
    Please let me know if you like to know more in depth, I will be happy to give my way of cooking and general way of cooking.
    Thank you

    For Boiled Rice, you dont have to add butter. But for Pulao you can add butter and other ingredients
    Thank you
