Perfect No Fail Basmati Rice
from: Stardustannie

This is my version on how to cook perfect rice....every grain will cooked to perfection...not one will stick together and you can make fried rice dishes right away with no problems!! Note: you will need a saucepan with clear glass there is to be no peeking! Can easily be time a guesstimate.


  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 1/4 cups water

Rinse rice till water runs clear, drain well.

In saucepan place water and rice, cover and cook over low-med flame till water looks evaporated and steam holes appear.

Turn of flame -- DO NOT LIFT LID!

Leave for 5 minutes then fluff with a fork -- your result will be perfecly cooked rice.
