    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    Rice rice rice! If you came over to my apt. in Orlando, rice is one thing you will get without fail. Why? Oh because the most challenging thing for me was to make RICE in USA, believe it or not! In Oman, our cook cooked rice with atleast 2 tbsps. of oil/ghee/butter and minium 1 tsp of salt per cup of rice! When I came here and started cooking, I would do the same. However, one fine day I decided to take the bull by the horns and devise my own way to make rice in a way by which EVERYONE could enjoy it GUILT-FREE! I am PROUD to say that this is what I created over a period of 1 week! This is how I make my rice now and keep my family happy. My picky eater brother says that this can sell for a MILLION US DOLLARS:) Dont know about that, but I will settle with alot of nice reviews;)

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup long grain basmati rice, cleaned,washed and soaked in water for 45 minutes,then drained before using to cook
    • 2 cups water, to cook the rice

      Once it starts boiling rapidly, lower flame and add the drained rice to it.
    3. 3
      Mix once and then increase the flame.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil.
    5. 5

    11. 11
      Place the cooked rice that's in the strainer under the cold water faucet.
    12. 12
      Let the cold water wash over every single grain of rice.
    13. 13
      Keep mixing the rice grains as the water gushes over them.
    14. 14
      Once you have given the rice grains a"cold water bath"{as I call it}, and drained out as much water as possible from the rice through the rice strainer, transfer the rice to a large plate.
    15. 15
      Now, spread the grains as much as possible from each other in the plate.

      Microwave for 10 minutes.

    19. 19
      Don't bother about that.
    20. 20
      Just microwave the rice, uncovered, for exactly 10 minutes.
    21. 21
      Do not mix the rice in these 10 minutes.
    22. 22
      Do not disturb it.
    23. 23
      Let the RICE GODDESS WORK HER MAGIC on every single grain.
    24. 24
      Once 10 minutes are up, let the rice sit for 2 minutes before you open the microwave and take out the cooked rice.
    25. 25
      Mix well and serve it right off the plate.
    26. 26
