How to cook Basamti Rice

August 9th, 2012 No Comments


Without fail, I always messed up cooking rice in a regular pot. UNTIL I found these instructions! I would send you directly to the page, but the way it’s written out there is a little hard to follow so here are the simple steps:

  1. Measure out your rice. 1 cup serves 4 people or me for a week!
  2. Rinse the rice with water at least 3 times.
  3. Pour 1.5 cups of water in a pot (thicker the better) for each cup of rice you have in the pot.
  4. Cover with a tight lid and bring to a boil. Do not lift the lid.
  5. When the water boils (do not lift the lid to check), reduce heat.
  6. Simmer for 12-14 minutes then take off heat. DO NOT REMOVE LID.
  7. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes covered until you are ready to serve.
  8. Fluff it up with a fork.

Super simple, works every time for both white and brown basmati rice.
