Quarantine Cuisine: Basmati Rice

  • Author: Virginia Vogel


The trick to perfect basmati rice is to rinse it first, under running water, until the water runs clear. Doing so removes the starch and makes the rice fluffy, not sticky.



1 ¾ cup water

12 tablespoons butter, unsalted

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup basmati rice


Bring water, butter and salt to a boil in a medium pot. Add rinsed and drained rice and stir briefly. Cover,
turn heat to low and simmer 15 minutes or just until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff rice
with a fork. Serve immediately.
