Step by step

Here is the cooked basmati rice, serve it with the fragrant sauce you’ve just made

Tips
The process of cooking basmati rice at home is as follows: take a non-stick pan and add the rice having first rinsed it in fresh water. Cover with water up to ½ cm above the level of the rise. Add a pinch of salt and cover. Turn the heat to low. As soon as the water reaches boiling point, simmer for 12 minutes. Then turn off the heat and time a further 12 minutes without removing the lid. After this period, your rice is ready, fragrant and fluffy to just the right extent, perfect for accompanying your Thai-style or other ethnic dishes.
Trivia
In the supermarket you’ll find excellent basmati rice perfect for this kind of recipe. You should find written on the packet both Thai rice and/or scented basmati rice, depending on the brand. Its aroma is delicate and unmistakably Eastern. Keep a pack in the pantry and always cook it carefully, using the traditional eastern method. Don’t use it for risotto or rice salads as the result will be unsatisfactory. A curiosity in relation to curry: curry is not a single spice, but a mixture of spices. That's why not all curry tastes the same: they may be more or less spicy. To control the flavour and final outcome of your curry, just do as we suggest us in this recipe, or make a spice mixture yourself.
