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® Ultima 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.

Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Once cooked, fluff the rice with a fork and serve while still hot.
