Basmati Rice

This is such a good way of cooking rice - you end up with lovely light fluffy rice and you can make it slightly in advance.
If I am cooking this rice to serve with a curry, or something like that, I would add some whole spices to the water and serve them on the top of the bowl of rice; For example, a small cinnamon stick and a few whole green cardamon pods.

Ingredients

Method

  • 1.

    Fill a large saucepan with water and bring up to the boil.

  • 2.

    Add the salt and the rice,stir for a second or two and boil on a high heat for about 4-5mins, or until the rice is nearly cooked (you want to still have a tiny bit of bite, otherwise the rice will stick later) then strain.

  • 3.

    Put the rice into a serving dish, stir in the butter if using, cover with tin foil, a plate or a lid, and leave it in a low oven 140c/275f/gas1 for at least 15 mins. (will sit for up to 30 mins like this).

  • 4.

    When ready to serve,remove the lid,fluff up the rice and serve.
