Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Dainty Brown Basmati rice
  • 2 cups (500 mL) of Water or Chicken, Beef or Vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon margarine or butter
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)

Preparation

1

Pour the water or broth into your rice cooker, then add the rice and give it a stir. You can also add the margarine or butter now if desired.

2

Place the cover on the cooker and press the button to cook. Let the rice cooker take care of the cooking while you prep the rest of your meal.

3

When the cooking is done, gently fluff the brown basmati with a fork. Add the butter if not done in step 1, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4

Serve the rice immediately or leave it warm until mealtime. You may also wish to unplug your rice cooker if the rice is to sit for a while to prevent it from drying out.

Note: Rinsing and soaking Dainty rice is not necessary as it is already cleaned. To learn more, read on our rice encyclopedia.
