Back to the post at hand...
For camp last week we made Indian Basmati Rice. I had never made a rice that was as seasoned as this, but I have eaten it at restaurants and loved it. Basically, once you have the spices, it is super easy.

The first thing you MUST do is soak the rice to get rid of the starchiness. The recipe called for soaking it once, but I had heard while watching Food Network's Aarti Party that you should do so a few times until the water is no longer cloudy. (Or perhaps I imagined this, but I am pretty sure she said that.)
