The recipe doesn't say to wash the rice. Cooking basmati this way, in a pot will lead to clumpy starchy rice and not fluffy rice.
I made this as the side dish to a grilled citrus chop and it was the star of the meal. My son went back and practically licked the pan clean.
This is delicious and I highly recommend it.
I don't normally rate recipes but since this one has such a small number of ratings, I wanted to echo the other 5 star reviews!
This was very easy to throw together in my rice cooker. I just added the basil right before serving. We both loved it!
Yum! This rice is very delicious and is described perfectly as it is just 'scented' with the citrus flavors. I served this with a coconut shrimp and spicy mango sauce dish I found on here and it was awesome!!!
This dish was a delighful surprise...light, fresh tasting and interesting! Every time I have made it, the recipe is always requested. Serve it with grilled chicken breasts and lightly sauteed sugars snap peas for a wonderful combo...company-ready in a short time. A winner!!
This rice is hands down delicious. I made it to go with the Southeast Asian Grilled Flank Steak, and the combination was fantastic. Even plain vegetables served with this rice are delicious. I made it with freshly grated orange and lemon zest, and between 3 people it was all eaten up.
