Everyone has their own preferred way of cooking basmati. This is our favourite. Allow 60g of uncooked rice per person (approx. 1/2 cup) 1 Measure dry rice: 2 measures water.1. For best results we recommend you soak the rice in cold water for 30 minutes, then rinse in a sieve with cold water.2. Take a large pan and add 2 measures of cold water to 1 measure of basmati.3. Bring to the boil, reduce to a low heat, cover and simmer for 10 - 12 mins until the water is absorbed. Avoid opening the lid or stirring the rice.4. Remove from heat, stand covered for 5 mins.5. Lightly fork through the grains before serving.Alternatively: Rinse uncooked rice with cold water. Add to a large pan of boiling water, cook on medium heat for 10-12 mins. Drain well and stand for 3 mins. Lightly fork through the grains and serve.
