Instructions
  1. Rinse rice in several changes of cold water until water runs clear. Drain well in a fine-mesh sieve.
  2. Melt butter in a 4-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, then add rice and cook, stirring, 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in water and salt and bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered and undisturbed, 5 minutes. Fluff rice gently with a fork.
Recipe Notes
Traditional Indian recipes for basmati rice call for soaking the rice, but we find that it isn't necessary in this case.
Rice can be made 1 day ahead and cooled completely, uncovered, then chilled in an airtight container. Reheat rice, its surface covered with a dampened paper towel, in a colander set over a saucepan of boiling water, covered, 5 to 10 minutes.
