My sure fire, never fail microwave rice recipe



1 cup long grain basmati rice**
3 cups cold water
2Qt soufflé pan or glass equivalent
Microwave 20 minutes on high.
Stir and serve.
**This does not work with cheap white rice, which becomes mushy when cooked this way.  10,15, and 20 LB bags of basmati rice are available for sale at import and oriental stores for 50 cents to a $1 a pound. Most are bagged in burlap sacks with plastic bags inside.
