Persian Recipe: Basmati Rice

  • 3 cups basmati rice
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 8 cups cold water

pick over the rice carefully to remove any grit

wash rice: wash the rice by placing it into a large bowl and covering in warm water. Gently agitate with your hand, then pour off the water. Repeat five times to get the rice clean.

Cook rice: in a large non-stick pot, bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the rice to the pot and boil hard for 6-10 minutes. Gently stir to remove any rice sticking to the bottom. Once the rice rises to the top it is done. Drain the rice and rinse with warm water.
