Basmati is a kind of rice that stands out for its aromatic qualities and for its longer and finer grains.About the Basmati rice, did you know that in Hindi basmati means “queen of fragrances”? In the West, it is not the most used rice, but it is delicious and, imagine, it is super easy to cook! Especially for those like me who like Asian and more exotic flavors! I accompanied this basmati rice with a wonderful chicken with sweet and sour sauce (pay attention to the website, I’ll leave you the recipe for this chicken in one of the next articles!) Shall we try it? Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!! For more recipes, check out Recipes.
- Put the rice to soak with plenty of water, this is one of the tricks to make it lose.
- Wash the basmati rice well and drain to eliminate excess starch. When the water boils, add the rice to cook, stirring occasionally.
- Keep the cinnamon stick and bay leaves inside the basmati rice.
