Top Review by ChefDebs

This is a great recipe for an indian style rice. I used 1 1/2 cups basmati rice to 3 cups water, and cooked it in a rice maker. I also sprinkled 1 tsp turmeric over the rice before cooking, which turned the rice a beautiful yellow colour.I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting it.
