Organic White Basmati Rice has a unique, slightly nutty flavour with a firmer texture than most other varieties of white rice. Basmati is a traditional Indian rice, and is a delicious side dish with curries and suits coconut flavours. Steamed or boiled, Basmati rice remains separate and is light and fluffy when cooked.
To cook delicious, fluffy Basmati rice either steam, boil or use the reduction method. Saffron is a perfect addition to Basmati and can be added to the pot at the beginning of the cooking process.
To Boil - Add rice to boiling water (1:3) and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat, and leave covered for a further 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork.
For reduction - fill cold water about 1.5 cm above rice and simmer, covered, until water has evaporated, about 18 minutes. Let stand for further 5 minutes, fluff and serve.
Once cooled, Basmati’s separate grains make it ideal for salads or fried rice.
