too long winded just soak in cold water for 2 hours then drain cook in boiling water till soft drain then run under cold water simple thats for plain for pilau rice just place ingredents in water then do same just leave to cool end of

Possibly the worst advice ever Shaun. You never wash cooked rince in cold water. Properly cooked rice will be dry - why would you rinse it under cold water and make it all soggy again? Crazy!  :o

I have to thank CA for this wonderful recipe. Unlike my photography it turned out perfectly. Separate grains and a beautifully delicate flavour.



Made a batch using 500g of Tilda Basmati so freezing the rest in portions.

Not as far as I can tell.  I've not read the recipe before (seems a great deal of faffing about involved), but my reading is that you wash and soak the rice, then fry it, then boil it.  That is also what I do, but the frying and boiling take place in a microwave oven, and as the absorption method is used, there is no loss of basmati flavour.

A rough précis :

  • Wash rice
  • Drain rice
  • Fry spices
  • Fry rice
  • Boil rice
  • Test rice
  • Drain rice
  • Colour rice
  • Leave rice
  • Fluff rice
  • Re-heat rice
  • Serve rice
A simpler alternative, cooked in a Pyrex(R) casserole dish in a microwave oven.
