Perfect Basmati Rice Every Time

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ChefDebs

If you follow this method of cooking basmati rice it will be perfect and fluffy every time; the rinsing is very important as it removes alot of the starch.It is best to use a rice cooker, but can be cooked in a saucepan with equal success.

My new favorite rice! I was reluctant to stray from the typical white rice my family adores but the basmati was received with rave reviews from EVERYONE.
