1 cup Basmati rice
2 cups water or stock
Pinch of sal

Directions:
Measure out your rice into a medium-sized pot. Run cold water into the pot until the rice is covered. Dump the cloudy water out, and keep rinsing until the water is relatively clear.

When your rice is clean, measure out your water and add it to the pot.Toss in the salt.Set the pot on the stove, uncovered, over high heat. Bring the water to a boil.

When the water comes to a boil, knock the heat down low enough so that it just holds a simmer. Cover the pot and crack the lid. Simmer without stirring for maybe 10 minutes (depending on how hot you have the stove). Keep a good eye on it until you get a sense for timing.

When a lot of the water has been absorbed and you see tiny steam holes appear on the surface of the rice, turn the stove off completely. Leave the pot on the burner, and cover completely for maybe 10 more minutes. The rice will absorb the remainder of the water during this time.

Right before serving, fluff the finished rice up by raking it with a fork.

Serve and enjoy!
