- Wash. Washing basmati before cooking is essential to ensure that the starch is removed. You do not need to wash the rice until the water runs clear, like sushi rice, but you should wash it a couple of times either in a fine-mesh sieve.
- Soak. Soaking the rice can produce softer rice, though it is not necessary.
- Add water. Remember, for every cup of basmati rice, add a cup and a half of water.
- Cook. To cook rice, use a rice cooker or a heavy-bottomed pot over the stove.
