Basmati Rice

Jyl.Ferris's picture
Basmati rice is a whole grain food. It's rich in flavor and very simple to cook. Adding chicken or vegetable stock instead of water makes it more flavorful. Choose an organic stock because many of the others contain chemical flavor enhancers. Most rice recipes call for two parts water to one part rice. I prefer adding a little less water for a al dente chew to the rice. Watch the Fried Rice video for a great idea for what to do with leftover rice.
