Plain Boiled Rice for Curries

Thumbnail of Plain Boiled Rice for Curries recipe

Wash the rice thoroughly in several waters, and put, say a pound, to boil in three quarts of cold water, with a little salt; allow it to boil gently until in each grain of rice may be seen the division which is effected in the course of boiling, and which gives to the grains of rice when done the form of the letter x: the rice must then be drained upon a sieve, covered with a napkin, and placed in the screen to dry, care being taken to move it lightly with two clean forks, in order to prevent the grains from sticking together, and becoming clammy.

Well-cooked rice for curries, must be thoroughly done, and present a perfectly white and light appearance.
