K grew up with Jasmine rice, but he also loves Basmati rice. Partly because of one of our favorite restaurants, but also because it’s different. It’s really simple to make, so if I find a recipe that uses it, I am ok with it, even though that means I go without our rice cooker. I am sure you can use the rice cooker, but I haven’t wanted to mess with a good method! Well, this time I decided to mess with “the method” a little bit. Instead of just plain Basmati rice, I added some turmeric and curry powder when I added the rice to the boiling water. This turned the rice a pretty yellow color, and it tasted really good with the main course. It makes me think about what I should try next time, or what I could add to Jasmine rice!
