THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO COOK BASMATI RICE:
Soak rice 10-15 minutes for extra grain length (optional). For enhanced taste, add 2 teaspoon of oil or 1 tablespoon of butter and a pinch of salt for each dry cup of rice prepared (optional). To remove excess starch from rice, rinse Daawat® Traditional Basmati Rice 1-2 times, then drain. For FIRMER RICE, use less water and reduce cooking time. For SOFTER RICE, use more water and increase cooking time.
STOVE TOP METHOD: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in sauce pan with tight fitting lid. Once the water is boiling, add 1 cup of Daawat® Traditional Basmati Rice, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Once cooked, fluff the rice with a fork and serve while still hot.
RICE COOKER METHOD:Use ratio: 1 cup rice to 2 cups water. See rice cooker manual for specific operation. Once cooked, fluff the rice with a fork and serve while still hot.
MICROWAVE METHOD: (1200-Watt rating) Combine 1cup rice and 2 ½ cups water in a microwave-safe container (2qts minimum capacity).
