Basmati Rice
This recipe serves:   
1 cup long grain Basmati rice
1 1/2 cups water

Cooking Instructions
1. Place the rice in a large, deep bowl and cover with water. Drain and repeat until the water rinses clear. Run your fingers through the rice several times to fluff the kernels.

2. Place the rice and water in a heavy saucepan with a lid. Heat uncovered until the water boils.

3. Lower the heat, cover and simmer about 18-20 minutes, or until the water has evaporated and the rice kernels are just tender.

4. Remove from the heat and fluff lightly with a fork to separate the grains.

5. Serve the rice immediately while hot, or let the rice cool on a baking sheet. Cover with plastic and store in the refrigerator.
