The Best way to cook our Organic Basmati Rice
For Best results presoak the Organic Basmati in spring water for 15-30mins.
The best way to prepare Basmati rice is to first rinse it in water. Place the desired amount in a large bowl, cover with water and strain out the water at least three times. After the rice is thoroughly rinsed, place it in the cooking pot and allow it soak in water for about 15-30 minutes. This allows each grain to absorb water and therefore stick less to other grains while cooking. If you do not soak the rice first, cook one part rice to two parts water. Soaked rice can use less water such as one cup of rice and one and three quarter cups water. Bring the rice and water to a boil, cover with a secure lid and reduce to a simmer. Don't lift the lid or stir the rice as it is cooking. The reason is that as the rice is expanding it forms various steam tunnels. If these are interrupted then the rice will not cook evenly, resulting in the bottom soggy or burned and the top not done. Allow to cook for 15 - 20 minutes. The rice should not be mushy and stuck together. Each grain should come out firm, separate and tasty. To tell if the rice is cooked enough, remove a grain of rice and squeeze it between the thumb and forefinger.. It should completely mash. There should be no hard parts. That's it....Enjoy your Delicious Organic Rice!
