Dehraduni Basmati Rice

Excellent quality, flavor and aroma. This rice needs thorough rinsing with cold water before boiling. The "bath" washes away the "starch" which would cause the grains to clump together in a sticky mess. I use a half-cup of the raw rice, bringing it to a gentle boil in 3/4s cup of water, then slow simmer for 30 minutes. Set the pot aside for a couple of minutes, then use. Grains should be separate and fluffy.
