1 quart of Boiling Water
1 Cup Basmati or Jasmine Rice
2 Fresh Bay Leaves (Yeah you can use dried whole bay leaves)
1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
Lil butter to taste....
Bring the water to a boil with the Bay leaves.
Add the salt, stir. Next stir in rice. Don't agitate the rice by stirring too much!
Let it come to a boil, cover yo' pot with a lid lower/BRING DOWN THE HEAT - LO/MED.
Cook for about 11-15 minutes.
Check for tenderness with a bite - (a bite feel is not a crunch sound.)
When it’s tender, drain if needed, pluck out the bay leaves, and serve.
