Basamti Rice

Making the perfect basmati rice to go with your curry can be an effortless job if you follow a few simple tricks. Although it might seem a simple task there are a few things to keep in mind while making rice, like choosing rice that is aged and has long grains, cooking time, water etc. To make a rice and curry meal taste delicious the texture and flavour of the rice is as important as the taste of the curry. Basmati rice is gluten free, low in fat and nowadays you can even get brown basmati rice for a healthier option. Making your own basmati rice will save you lots of money on the Indian food take-aways and tastes so much better. Left over basmati rice can be turned into a quick fried biryani or spiced and stuffed into vegetables for a whole new dish.
