Characterized by its distinctive, nutty fragrance and long and slender shape, SHILOH FARMS Basmati Brown Rice delivers whole grain goodness with an exotic flair! A traditional element of Indian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern cuisines, aromatic basmati rice would be equally delightful in pilafs, stir fries, casseroles, salads, or any other dish calling for rice.
Longer than most other types of rice, basmati grains lengthen even further during the cooking process. Cooked grains are characteristically free flowing (rather than sticky), resulting in a drier, fluffy texture.
To Cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer about 45 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender to your satisfaction. Remove from heat and let stand for several minutes before fluffing with a fork to finish. 1 cup of uncooked rice plus 2 cups of water will yield about 3 cups of cooked rice.
• Basmati holds on to more starch than other rice. Because of this, it should be rinsed several times - the goal is to rinse the rice until the water is no longer cloudy.
• For optimal results, leave the lid on and do not stir during the cooking process.
