How to Make How to make Rice
Take 1 cup basmati, long grain rice, wash with water in a rotary motion, between palms.
Remove water 2-3 times till milkiness disappears.
Soak with enough water over the rice, add 1/2 tsp. salt.
Keep aside for 15 minutes.
Use the same procedure for any other variety of rice, but make sure you soak rice for 30 minutes.
To proceed on Stove:
On stove, place plenty of water to boil.
When water begins to boil, add rice along with the water in which it was soaked.
Once boiling resumes, simmer and cover the vessel partially.
Simmer till done, (approx 10 minutes)
To check if rice is done, take a grain between thumb & finger.
Press. It should break easily, but not be hard.
It should also not become pasty.
Remove and drain in the sink in a colander. Save water in a container to dilute and use as starch for clothes.
How to cook rice in a Pressure Cooker:
In pressure cooker, take rice in a cooker container.
Add the water in which it was soaked too. Add enough water so that the water is a little less than double the quantity of rice.
Cover, and cook for 2 whistles. For any other variety of rice other than Basmati rice, cook for an extra whistle.
Allow steam to escape and cool cooker before opening.
To proceed in the Microwave:
In microwave, heat 3 cups water in a large bowl (Use the rice water first).
Add rice to the boiling water.
Cover loosely and cook on high for 14-15 minutes.
Allow to stand for 5-7 minutes before opening.
If you are not using Basmati rice, increase the quantity of water by half cup.
Always use a large, deep bowl, to avoid overflows and spillovers.
