Best rice you can eat

My regular diet growing up has always been rice. This is by far the best quality. I cheat though and use a rice cooker and it works every time. It is expensive per kg but I generally buy the 5kg or 10kg. Am only buying the 1kg on this occasion because of the special offer. My rice caddy normally holds 2.5kg.

Excellent rice

Recently I switched to normal long grain rice on the basis of cost, but found it tasteless and I needed to use more rice to produce the same amount when cooked. This basmati is excellent - you use less per portion and it actually tastes like proper rice!

As good as the skill of the chef

Having been used in the subcontinet with out fanfare, Basmati has become fotr the mass of th British popluous the most know rice. So much so expensive than other brands, but worth the money. However the skill n having a premium product is in the ability to cook it. SO if you are going to pay the premium price make sure you aquaint yourself wit how to cook it, else just get the Uncle Bens version or you will have wasted your money, as Bamati has become the buzz word, without the raising of education is how to wash and cook the rice,

Lisa's Tip: This recipe is so simple but gives a huge flavour boost. The rice gets a slightly sweet and nutty flavour so its a perfect complement to Asian cooking. If you are making a curry, fish, spicy stir fry or even a roast chicken, this rice will be a great side!

Kung Po Beef Wraps

By marinating the beef with the Kung Po sauce, you get juicy, spicy beef which partners perfectly with in a rice and lettuce wrap. Chef's tip: why not make a platter with beef, rice and lettuce and allow everyone to build their own wrap?
