Change Number of Servings To:

Serves: 4 
Cooking time (approx.):  minutes
Style: Microwave Recipe


2  cup(s) uncooked long grain rice (called Basmati rice in India)
4  cups water
salt to taste

  • Put the rice, salt and water in a large deep microwave-safe bowl. Microwave covered on high (100%) power for about 12  minutes (stirring at regular intervals).

    TIPS:

  • Adding salt is optional.
  • When the microwave cooking time for a step exceeds 2 minutes, it is highly recommended the contents be checked and stirred at regular intervals to avoid burning of food.
  • Standing time is a very important step as it completes the microwave cooking process of a dish. Ideally, allow the dish to stand for about 5 minutes before serving.

Serve hot with: Goan Vegetable Curry or any other curries of your choice.

Note: The above recipe is designed for a microwave oven of 800 Watts. Higher wattage microwave ovens will require shorter cooking times. Kindly refer to the manual accompanying your microwave oven for its wattage. IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED THAT ALL THE CARE AND PRECAUTIONS SPECIFIED IN THE OVEN MANUAL BE TAKEN DURING THE MICROWAVE COOKING PROCESS.
