A rice cooker is must-have when cooking Indian food. Remember to add 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice.
Recipe provided courtesy of Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen.
Yield 4 cups cooked rice
- 2 cups long grain rice
- 3 3/4 cups water
Wash rice with several changes of water. Add rice and water to the rice cooker and follow the rice cooker's instructions to cook white rice.
Alternative: To cook rice on the stove instead of using a rice cooker, place rice and water in a heavy medium sauce pan and bring it to boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to lowest setting, cover and cook for about 20-25 minutes, until rice is cooked and the surface is covered with steam holes. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Use a fork to fluff up the rice before serving.
