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.

Though cooking rice is not a big deal but this recipe has helped me alot in getting the perfect cooked rice. Each grain is so separate and perfectly cooked. This basic recipe is very helpful. Thanks.
