Can you cook basmati rice in a rice cooker?

greedygirl | Oct 12, 2008 01:25 AM

I was perusing my Fuchsia Dunlop book on Sichuan cooking earlier and I notice she says that rice cookers are no good for basmati rice. Coincidentally, my Chinese-Malaysian friend said the same thing the other day.

I have noticed that my (Cuisinart) rice cooker is better for jasmine rice than basmati. I've found it hard to get perfectly separate grains but assumed that was just user error. But maybe not?

Cooking rice drives me bonkers!
