Home cooked vegetarian food recipe - Basmati Rice

Here is the Basmati rice that we usually serve to our yoga retreat guests here in Langkawi.

Basmati Rice (serve 3-4 people)

2 rice measurement cups of Basmati rice

4-5 slices of peeled ginger

A pinch of salt

1-2 Pandan leaves (tide into a knot)

A bit of thick coconut milk (optional)

Rinse the rice in the rice cooker pot (if you have one - it is not expensive and it's very convenient) for a few times.

Add in water until the water level is about 1 cm off the rice surface. It is easy when using the rice cooker as measurements are marked inside the pot to show you how much water you should add in.

Add in the sliced ginger, salt and Pandan leaves.

Wipe off the excess water on the outside of the pot before putting into the rice cooker.

Switch on the rice cooker. It will be ready in about 15-20 minutes. At this stage when the water is drying up, you may stir in a little bit of thick coconut milk, if you like. It is better if we leave the rice to sit for at least 5 minutes in the rice cooker after the switch popped to the keep warm mode.

Stir well and remove the ginger and Pandan leaves.

Serve hot.

Bon Appétit!

*If you don't have a rice cooker, then add the water until about 1 cm off the surface of the rice. Bring the rice to boil at medium to high heat until the water dries up. Switch off the heat and let it sits for another 5-10 minutes covered with lid.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
