The success of perfectly cooked rice.
First, the rice should be washed twice to remove extra starch. Then soak the rice for about 20 minutes. The rice will expand by about 25 percent. The exact quantity of water or stock to be used depends on the variety of rice.
For basmati, a rough estimate is 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 times the quantity of rice. Allow the rice to cook in its own steam. As soon as all the water is absorbed, remove the rice from the heat.
At this point, keep the lid on for an extra 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the lid and gently stir with a fork, allowing the rice to dry and giving you perfectly cooked rice with separated grains.
What to serve with Indian lemon rice.
I always serve Indian rice with Indian food. Two of my favourites are Low-Fat Indian Butter Chicken and Sweet Potato, Savoy Cabbage and Chicken in Light Curry Sauce. The Indian lemon rice goes exceptionally well with these two curry dishes.
Is basmati rice healthy?
Basmati rice is long grain rice that comes from India. It is aromatic and has a distinct flavour. It is also lower in calories than regular long-grain rice.
Basmati rice contains an array of vitamins and minerals, protein and fiber, and has a lower glycemic index than regular rice. Making basmati rice more suitable for people with diabetes.
