Green tea steeped microwave rice

 

1 cup basmati rice;

2 & 3/4 cups water;

Pinch of salt;

1 tbs green tea leaves, crumbled.

 

Put all ingredients in a microwave safe covered bowl.  Depending on the strength of your microwave, this should take around 12 minutes to cook.  I usually cook for 5 minutes, then stir, then another five, then leave it until the rest of the meal is ready, then give it a final 2 minutes.  It should be enough for four people.
