The popularity of rice supersedes everything else, I’m sure just like every other family you have special rice dishes that you make at home. Let me give you 5 tips that will make you a rice master chef with Fortune Basmati Rice.
Food needs to allure the sight before it is devoured by taste buds, so it is utmost important to plate the food in way it looks appealing. You can use different types of moulds and ramekins for shaping your rice dish. All you have to do is to fill a mould with your cooked rice and invert it onto a plate. Why not make a nice triangular rice peak or a pastry-shaped rice dessert instead of the regular spherical moulds?
