    JustJanS's Note:

    This "recipe" comes from a 40 year old cook book I inherited when I met Russell! "Entertaining with Kerr". He was a pompus TV cook in Australia, and this is the only thing I've ever cooked out of the book. It's also the ONLY way I enjoy my rice (and we eat a lot of that!)

      Time for exactly 5 minutes.

      Turn the rice into the top of your double boiler (one with holes), place an inch of boiling water from the kettle in it (the bottom bit) and place the rice back over it.

      Jan, I have cooked many different styles of rice using this method and it works perfectly every time once you get use to the cooking time changes for each style of rice. It produces the perfect grain of cook rice. Thank you for posting the method.

      I don't have a double boiler so I used a vegetable steamer in a large saucepan. My Basmati rice came out perfect. Thanks for posting, JJS.
