This makes a great accompaniment to asian flavoured meats. It is quick and easy, leaving you time to concentrate on the main.
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.
