Plain boiled rice

1 cup basmati rice
2 pints water


1.Wash and soak the rice for 1 hour
2.Change the water in the rice and put fresh water in it
3.Bring to boil and simmer for 10 mins until rice is tender(a la dente)
4.Drain rice in a collander and pour over the rice some boiling water to wash out the starch (this will give you less starch rice and separate grains)
5. When water is drained put rice in serving platter and using fork separate the grains .

Serve as accompaniment with any curry.


  1. Yummy, if one could get such yummy stuff cooked at home, one would not need think about eating outside.

  2. Sometimes simple is best.

  3. Sadly I manage to ruin rice every time I attempt it. It always ends up looking like porridge...

Thank you for taking the time to post "that kind word" its very inspiring.
