Basmati rice is a popular long-grain variety of rice grown in Pakistan and India. Basmati means "queen of fragrances" in Sanskrit, which is quite fitting, since the rice is famous for its unique aroma and delicate nut-like flavor. Available in both white and brown versions, the brown basmati variety is considered the most flavorful and healthy, since its nutrient-rich bran and germ haven't been removed. Brown basmati rice can be served alone or in stews, casseroles, salads, soups, and cooked plain or with vegetables. Learn how to prepare brown basmati rice and it will soon become one of your favorite recipes.
Put 1 cup of brown basmati rice into a large bowl. Rinse the rice under a faucet until the water runs clear.
Cover the basmati rice with water and allow it to soak for one hour. Soaking the rice allows moisture to penetrate and soften the outer layer of the grain, helping it to cook more thoroughly.
Add the soaked basmati rice, 2 cups of fresh water and 1/4 tsp. of sea salt to a 1 qt. saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Cook for 45 minutes.
Store the brown basmati rice in a covered container in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to seven days.
