How to Cook Basmati Rice in Rice Cooker?

brandondt | Jan 14, 201805:28 PM

I have a really nice Tiger rice cooker that I cook jasmine rice in. Jasmine rice works great, but when I try to cook basmati rice, it gets really clumpy, broken, and sticky. I would like the rice to be more separated, unbroken, and shiny (look in middle eastern and Indian restaurants).

I'm using a 1 to 1.5 rice to water ratio right now. Has anyone ever been able to successfully make good basmati rice in a rice cooker? Maybe 1 to 1 ratio and some butter would work?
