Basmati Rice with Cumin

Good basmati rice makes all the difference to a homemade curry. This is a simple recipe but the right way to do it.

It’s amazing rice recipe. I would add only a bit of water because I burned my rice twice but the taste is wonderful. Thanks

Made by toasting the cumin seeds, added 1 cinnamon stick and a few anise seeds from another reviewer's suggestion then proceeded with the recipe. Next time, I will do the same thing except I will use a whole star anise pod instead of the seeds for a a bit more flavor.

I cut the cumin seed to 1/2 tsp and added 2 cups water. Perfect! Occasionally we add mixed vegetables instead of peas.

Worked a treat the only thing I added was a touch of sea salt and ground black pepper. Thanks

This recipe is spot-on. My only change was to omit the cumin and add a heaping teaspoon of sweet curry powder to the water. The curry added a nice boost of both flavor and color. With or without curry (or cumin), this recipe is a keeper!

I really did not care for this recipe at all. I thought it needed more spice, maybe an onion. It was easy to make but it cooked in only 10 min, glad I checked it or it would have burned!

very good, simple recipe but more complex than serving plain rice. I sometimes cook rice in chicken stock to add more flavor. Very good. Thank you
