This allows you to serve customers freshly cooked rice faster, reducing wait time between the batches of rice.

I have a question for you. Which of these saucepans do you think is perfect is perfect to cook the most fluffiest of rices? A tall, skinny saucepan, or a saucepan with a wide surface area? Those of you who guessed a saucepan with a wide surface area - you're absolutely right. By cooking rice in a saucepan with a wide surface area, you are allowing an even distribution of heat, and that results in the rice being nice and fluffy.

Hi, I am Maneet Chauhan and I am so excited to be here at Project Angel Food. Thanks to Royal Basmati Rice, we are doing a demo on how to use Royal Basmati Rice in very unique ways. And I am actually going to get people over here to cook. They just don't know it. I am so excited. I got a tour of this wonderful facility and it is so amazing and heartwarming to see what is being done over here. I have become a big believer in Project Angel Food, so I am so excited to be here. So, let's go right over here. One of the quintessential things that people love in the South is a good hummingbird cake. I make a hummingbird cake with a little bit of basmati. I wasn't kidding when I told you that I'll put you to work! Good job, good job! Now, you guys do realize that if it's good, it's my recipe; if it's bad, you guys were cooking. As simple as... I'm just kidding! The second thing that we're going to do is a nasi goreng. It's an Indonesian favorite. It's smokey, it's got the vegetable quality. I've always been addicted to rice. As a kid, I would finish eating at home, go to my neighbor's house, who were from South India, and they would eat rice, and tell them that my mom didn't give me food to eat so can you give me some dinner? My obsession with rice goes forever. Finally, we're going to be making a chicken katsu burger. Instead of the burger buns, we are going to be making buns with rice. This is supposed to be a demo. I'm like, no, it's not going to be a demo. That's not what's gonna happen. As a chef, you're always looking for the best ingredients that's out there. Basmati has more rich flavor to it. You can only call a basmati if it's from the foothills of the Himalayas in India. It is the soil. It is the water. It is the combination of everything, which makes these grains so beautifully long and delicious.

A lot of people ask me how to make the rice fluffy and keep the grains elongated. The best way to do it is to soak it in water - cold water - for at least 20 to 30 minutes. It's as simple as that. This is Chef Maneet Chauhan from The Royal Kitchen.

    Basmati grain rice longer aged long Sella Websturant wait thin
    Sella Basmati rice is not available at grocery stores, so I was excited to find them at Websturant. Recently I am using Basmati rice from Royal and they are really good quality long and thin grain. This Sella Basmati grain is not as long, I think I will wait until it gets aged. Usually Basmati rice grain gets longer when cooked as they aged.
