Recipe
1
Measure 250 grams of basmati rice and rinse it thoroughly under running water until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch and prevents the rice from becoming sticky.
2
Soak the rice in water for 20-30 minutes to ensure even cooking and fluffier texture.
3
In a large saucepan, bring 500 ml of water to a rolling boil. Add a pinch of salt for taste (optional).
4
Drain the soaked rice and gently add it to the boiling water. Stir once to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom.
5
Reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, and let the rice cook for 10-12 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.
6
Turn off the heat and let the rice sit for 5 minutes with the lid on. This allows the rice to steam and become fluffier.
7
Remove the lid and gently fluff the rice with a fork. Serve hot with your choice of curry, dal, or side dish.
