  1. Soak the rice for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Discard the water in which rice were soaked and add twice amount of water to the rice and it can be cooked in a pressure cooker or in a pan.
  3. Add a tsp of oil and 1/2 tsp of salt in one cup rice and always boil the rice just a little less than done, to keep the grain whole and separate.You can also add 1 tsp of lemon juice after the rice are cooked to keep the grain separate.
  4. Rice can also be cooked by adding in 3-4 times water in a pan and once the rice is cooked, you can drain out all the excess starch water and cool rice in a large plate.
  5. Take a grain between thumb and index finger and press. If it breaks, on pressing but does not leave a hard speck, then it is done.
  6. While using cooked rice in a pulao do take care whwther you have added salt while cooking or not and adjust the salt while making the tempering of the rice.
