Special Indian Rice
the Perfect Rice
4 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 cups white basmati rice (I buy 20 lb. burlap sacks by Daawat)
3 cups water
2 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp sea salt
Rinse rice in rice strainer until water no longer gets cloudy. Leave to drain.
Start cycle on your rice cooker, place oil in bottom of rice cooker and close lid, letting the oil heat up. Then add mustard and cumin seeds, closing lid (or leaving up if your machine allows) until they start to pop. Add the rest of the ingredients, and let the cooking cycle complete.
When it is done, stir rice, fluffing and making sure seeds are mixed throughout and leave on warm cycle for 10 minutes if desired. (Or serve immediately)
I love this easy rice with indian curries. It’s really, really good and flavorful, and goes with anything.
