SunRice Basmati & Long Grain Blend

SunRice Basmati & Long Grain Blend

This blend of aromatic Basmati and Long Grain Rice is the gateway to Indian cuisine and produces a light fluffy texture ideal for absorbing flavours. A drier rice, Basmati grains will remain separate, which makes it a staple of Indian cooking. It tastes great with tandoori and in curries such as the classic butter chicken, or as an alternative base for a Thai massaman curry. For best results, Basmati rice should be rinsed and then soaked for 30 minutes prior to cooking. All rice is naturally gluten free.

Basmati

Basmati rice is renowned for its delightful aroma and long slender grains. When cooked, Basmati rice expands in length and produces a light, fluffy texture that is ideal for absorbing the flavours of your cooking. A drier rice, Basmati grains will remain separate, making it a staple of Indian cooking.

Method

  • To cook the white rice, in a saucepan, add 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stand, covered for 5 minutes. If you are not sure how, we have a helpful “How to Cook rice section” to make you a pro. If you would like to use a brown rice in this recipe, simply add an additional ½ a cup of water.

    Tip: For a quicker alternative, we also have a range of ready rices, that are ready to eat in 90 seconds!

  • Fry the chicken with the onion and garlic in hot oil for 2-3 minutes.

  • Add the curry powder and fry briefly before adding the stock and coconut milk.

  • Add the peppers and peas and simmer gently for around 10 minutes until cooked.

  • Season to taste with salt, a dash of lemon juice and cayenne pepper, adding more stock if necessary and serve on a bed of hot rice and garnish with coriander.
