Perfect Boiled Rice


The best rice to use for separate, fluffy grains is basmati. The rice grains are long, thin and pointed. It is usually more expensive than the other rice.  Indian basmati rice is considered to be the best in the world. Basmati rice is full of flavour and great taste. Back home in India whenever a guest used to come or there was a party, my mom always cooked basmati rice for them as it has got superior taste.
