What type of rice to use in Indian cooking?

The best variety of rice to use in savory dishes is basmati rice. Whichever type of rice you choose to cook, remember that it increases 2-3 times in volume when cooked. Before cooking the rice rinse it in water to remove pieces of husk. It is good to let the rice soak in a cold water for at least 15 minutes. Cooked rice is then much more fluffy. Soaking rice also increases the ability to absorb other liquids and sauces later on. A curry with perfectly cooked rice can be a unforgetable experiende for your taste buds.

Here are a few ingredients that are excellent additions for cooking classic Indian style rice.

  • Green Cardamom
  • Cumin seeds (best when when the seeds are toasted first)
  • Mustard seeds
