FMIOTW: Brown Basmati rice

While exploring the Whole Foods bulk section, I stumbled across the quiet stash of brown basmati rice. I’m not usually one to go for brown rice, but I was up for trying something new. Also, I was making a heavily spiced stew so I was looking for a more plain rice accompaniment. I tossed the rice around in hot olive oil and a little salt until toasted, and then let it simmer away for approx 1/2 hour with the ratio of 1 C. rice to 2 C. water.

The nutty aroma from the toasting rice took me by surprise and to my delight, my plain side dish turned into my future rice type of choice!
