First time I have ever made basmati like this anbd it is perfect for making a large quantity. Great taste, just like restaurant rice. Loved it. Notes-- I used much less butter, and only 51% fat butter at that and it was still excellent. Otherwise, made exactly as written.

Excellant recipe! I wouldn't change a thing. If you are serving this as a side dish, it would serve 8. This recipe makes alot. Super simple recipe.

This was wonderful, it went great with Rogan Josh that I made for friends. The recipe was simple and yet produced a great result. In fact my DH said it was the best rice I had ever made. Will be making this one again soon. Thanks Carla for sharing

I loved this recipe! These were the best rice I've ever had! In stead of using the oven I just let the rice boil on the stove until all the water was absorbed - then I let it rest for 10 minutes. It was perfect! Thanks Brian!

Excellent rice dish to have with our curry. It was simple to make, tasted great and freed up a burner. I'll be making this again thanks Carla. I only cheated a little, I added stock powder at the end of step 4, then poured already boiling water over the rice before stirring and popping it all in the oven. I have found rice cooks better this way.
