A deliciously yummy side dish for beef or chicken. Better than plain white rice or even boxed rice mixes.
Basmati rice scores low on the Glycaemic Index as its carbohydrate content is absorbed less quickly into the bloodstream than other types of rice, and thus it helps to keep blood-glucose levels stable.
The rice should be rinsed before cooking to get rid of the starchy powder left over from milling. If not rinsed the rice will be sticky or cling together.
Basmati rice has a fluffy texture, and a sweet flavor. Pairs well with brown rice and almonds.
