Basmati Rice is one of the most common Rice varieties that is used in Indian Cooking. The aroma that wafts through when you open the Biryani or Pulao pot is somethig magical. There are so many brands of Basmati available in India and outside India too.
After years of cooking with various brands I can safely say India Gate, Kohinoor,Tilda, Aldi are the three best.. Have been loyal to these brands only (No I am not paid to say this). The result is always fluffy, rice that dont stick to each other and is worth every penny.
There three different ways to cook Basmati Rice
- Draining method : This is the best way to get fluffy grainy textured rice
- Absorption Method : Read the pack and make sure if they have specified this method. In brands like Kohinoor they would have clearly mentioned that the Rice can be cooked in Absorption method too. However if you don’t find any such mention in your pack then kindly follow draining method that I have explained below
- Pressure cooker method : This is similar to cooking our normal Ponni Rice
