Fresh Mint Flavoured Basmati Rice

Method

  • Heat water in a pot on high flame.
  • Once it starts bubbling, lower heat and add the drained rice and salt.
  • Stir once and allow to cook.
  • Once it comes half-way to a boil, add the mint leaves.
  • Lower flame, partially cover with a lid and allow it to cook until almost three-fourth done.
  • Uncover and drain in a colander(done to remove the starch).
  • Transfer to a clean(and preferably warm) casserole or serving container.
  • Otherwise, alternatively, transfer to a microwave-safe container and microwave for 3 minutes, uncovered.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.
