Lovely rice this - never buy anything else! Although currently eating my way through a 10Kg bag, so don't I need any for a while... Heat added!

premium quality rice, even my asian friends can only afford to eat it now and again saying its the creme de la creme.
#3
definitely the best rice, after White Pearl.
However this is usually available cheaper from any "ethnic" shop.
#4

You may get 500g for this price in an Asian Supermarket but this is a full 1kg. Can't understand why this is still voted cold?

Did you really just ask that?! If boiling, then apparently there is a water to rice ratio you should use, but I can never be bothered with that and just bung a load into a pan of boiling water and drain when it's soft enough for me (usually around 10-12mins). I hear rice cookers are the dogs tho... :thumbsup:

I tend to recommend LESS time than that, cook in LOADS of boiling water until there is still the slightest trace of a "bone" left in the grain (a bit like Pasta cooled "al dente" ) say more like 9 or 10 minutes after it has come back to boiling; try a few grains to be sure what state it is at! DRAIN well first, then leave to stand for about 5 to 10 minutes in the hot pan, covered, and the texture improves, with less sticking as well as completing the cooking - a bit like the way boiled potatoes improve leaving them a little after draining. (That's NOT the thing to do with pasta though!). Unless you really are on a low sodium diet, I thnk a little salt in the water does "harden" the grain and helps it not go mushy, but it is not a big difference. You certainly need salt on rice for taste though, but not in the huge quantities used by celebrity chefs, or Indian restaurants and takeaways!

Basmati is traditionally SOAKED before cooking though, and washed and drained several times, this seems to be most necessary when used in dishes such as Biryani or Pilau though, where it is cooking in the minimum liquid possible.

I know Chinese families seem to use Rice cookers a lot, but I am personally not that impressed with them.
