- Dairy-free recipes
- Gluten-free recipes
- 250g Basmati rice
- 600ml boiling water
- Put Basmati rice in a large heatproof serving dish with boiling water.
- Cover with cling film and pierce several times. Cook on high (900W) for 6 minutes, then medium (500W) for 8 minutes.
- Leave for a few minutes to stand, then remove the cling film to serve.
This recipe doesn’t save lots of cooking time, but you do get perfect results every time. Soaking it for half an hour to two hours before cooking makes the grains less likely to break during cooking if you prefer to cook traditionally instead of via microwave.
