  • About


  • 2 cups (360 g) basmati rice
  • Salt
  • Lemongrass tops, tied together in a half-knot



Put the rice in a sieve and rinse very well under running water. Dump into a 2-quart (2-L) saucepan and add 2ยผ cups (540 ml) water, a good pinch of salt, and the knotted lemongrass. Bring to a boil over high heat, stir once to unstick any grains from the bottom of the pan, then cover and cook over the lowest heat for 14 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Let stand, covered, for 3 minutes, then fluff with a fork or spatula.
