Place 225g (8 oz) washed Basmati rice into an AGA 2 litre stainless steel saucepan with 350ml (12 fl oz) water and a teaspoon of salt. Bring to the boil, stir and transfer to the floor of the Simmering Oven for 20 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and serve.
To give a subtle flavour to this rice cook with a bay leaf. Serve as an accompaniment to curries.
