Mama’s Perfect Basmati Rice

Wash 1 cup of Basmati rice till water runs clear, soak for 30 minutes, and then drain.

In a pot, bring 1½ cups water to a boil, then add rice, 1 tsp of canola or olive oil and ¼ tsp of salt.

Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to the lowest setting and cook rice for 13 minutes.

Remove from heat and let rest for 2 minutes, covered, before fluffing with a fork to serve.
