Plain Rice

Posted by Geetha on November 25, 2008

Rice is the main food for lunch in most of our families. The recipes will vary in how you’re preparing. Some may prepare in cooker or in steam or microwave. For the best result, you can cook it in a vessel with covered (steamed) top; instead of cooking in cooker. The recipe goes here:



Basmati Rice – 1 cup

Water – 2 cups

Salt – to taste (optional)


Dry roast the rice for few minutes without oil and then wash the rice well and soak it for 1/2 hour and heat a big pan with 2 cups of water and allow it to boil. Drain the water from rice and carefully pour the rice into boiling water. Once the rice started to boil, cover the top and allow to cook for 10 mins. Switch off the stove and stir it in fork spoon.

Note: Don’t stir it often, it will be sticky and rice will be broken.

If you dry roast the rice it gives you more taste ( don’t change the colour of rice)
