I am going to make this for my guests on this Sunday. This recipe sounds very good. But are you sure that we need to add only 2 cups of water to boil 2 cups of basmati rice and vegetables. Normally I have seen recipes that say to add water atleast double the quantity of rice. Would be helpful if you can clarify this. Thank you...
