Basmati rice before cooking steep for 30 minutes and then rinse with cold water until bestowed when the water becomes clear. After rinsing and soaking the rice dry it possible.


Pour the rice into cold unsalted water (1 cup rice to 1.5-2 cups of water) and bring to a boil uncovered. You can also cook in the broth. Boil for 10-12 minutes on low heat until the rice absorbs the water. Time start to count from the moment of boiling water. Simmer, covered, with a slightly ajar cover until the "craters" and stew under a tight lid. Bitten cooked grain of rice is al dente - firm, but evenly cooked.


After cooking, we leave it for 10 minutes, then pour the cold water and stir gently.


Basmati rice is ideal for salads and as an additive to meat and fish.

Bon appétit!
