basmati rice- brown (organic, 100gm)


100gm = ½ cup

brown basmati rice

The whole natural rice grain, with only the inedible outer husk removed: the bran layers and germ are left intact.

It has a long slender kernel, four to five times longer than its width.

Has a nuttier and stronger flavour and is more nutritious than white rice.

Brown rice contains the highest percentage of fibre, natural vitamins and minerals.

The long grains tend to remain separate and is preferable for savoury dishes such as fried rice, in pilaffs or served on its own.

To Cook- (using absorption method)

400g basmati rice

Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear, drain well
Place the rice in a large heavy based saucepan and add enough water to come about 5cms above the inside surface of the pan. (If you stick your index finger into the rice so that it sits on the bottom of the pan, the water will come up to the second joint)
Add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring the water quickly to boil- uncovered
When it is boiling, cover and reduce to a simmer
Cook for 15 minutes or until the rice is just tender, then remove the saucepan from the heat and rest the rice for 10 minutes without removing the lid
Fluff the rice with a fork before serving.
