BTW RubydooBefore opening the shop I always made C2go rice at home in the pressure cooker, unwashed just as Julians book instructed and it was perfect everytime.I made a batch at the shop for Raj to try and he wouldn't even try a teaspoonful because it hadn't been washed. He agreed that it looked/smelt very good, but absolutely refused to put any of it into his body lol.This is when he showed me this version, and I have got to say, it is really, really good. It really is amazing how much crap comes out of the rice when you wash it thoroughly.
Mate, if you're happy bollox to the washing.Like I said, I am sharing all info that I am learning....that's all
And yes Rubydoo, I also remember yellow rice. Many places boiled their rice in water that contained turmeric to give it an overall yellow colour. raj suggested that I should do this, but I said no. lol.
I left UK in 1996. Before that I used to have a curry once or twice a week like a lot of people do. Sometimes more, sometimes less.
I think that what triggered George and I to believe that it might be off-white, or even "murky brown" was the original proportions that you posted
Oh! my rice default colour is yellow, with royal cumin and a few other whole spices.

The only time I've been served brown-ish rice in an Indian restaurant was in the USA and it remains some of the worst Indian food I've ever eaten out, second only to some of my failures at home. Perhaps I was unlucky. The USA is a big place and it's now a long time ago.
