Steamed rice can be considered a staple food in india. Some communities have more of rice and less of rotis, while others prefer it vice-versa, but nevertheless it is cooked almost every day in indian households. It may be used as the base for a variety of pulaos or biryanis. For a homely meal, it can be served plain with dal, subzi and curds. The proportion of water to be used may vary depending on the variety of rice--some south indian varieties for example require more water and a greater cooking time. So, be aware of the variety of rice that you buy and the general proportions recommended for it.
