Best I have ever made. I put a few TBSP of oil with chopped onion and garlic in the pot first. I then fry the rice for a few minutes add chicken stock and VOILA!! PERFECT!
Thank you! Takes about 15 minutes on the stove before the 5 min rest time.
This was my first Basmati rice and it turned out perfect. I only added some salt with rice and water and that's all. Thank you!
EXCELLENT!! Added a pinch of salt, half a bay leaf (crumbled) and a pod of cardamom seeds. The rice came out perfect. I will only use this technique from now on.
My go to recipe for rice now. Easy, quick, and yummy.
I used brown basmati rice and don't have a pot that has a clear lid so I did have to peek a few times to see if the water was evaporated. It took about 10 minutes, but next time I'll time it. Turned out perfect anyways. Salt and butter would be good in the water.
This really was perfect, no fail basmati. I love this method because I can turn the heat off and let the rice continue to steam dry while I focus on the entree portion of the meal. Thank you so much for posting this! I will always cook my rice this way from now on.
Basmati is the best, most versital variety of rice. Just the right amount of fragrance and flavor, but not overpowering as I've found Jasmine rice to be for most dishes. White and brown rice are just too bland and boring unless cooked in broth. I've never been able to make any kind of rice just right, until following this recipe. Rinsing (and rinsing some more) is the key! I followed exactly, and made the best rice ever. Served with teriyaki chicken and fresh-steamed veggies. So perfect, thank you!
THANK YOU!! This is perfect. I will never have to search for another way to make basmati rice. So quick, easy and the texture is perfect!
This was perfect! The first time I messed it up because I started with the water boiling and had to add a lot more water. =( This time I put my rice and water in, set it to med-low, put a lid on it (with a vent, didn't hurt it) and just kept an eye on it until the water was evaporated. So good and sooo easy! Thanks so much!
