Why Sous Vide

One of the benefits of cooking Basmati rice in Sous Vide is you are pretty much guaranteed a perfect texture since Sous vide ensures a precise cooking temperature.

The only drawback I see is that it takes a little longer to make compared to cooking it on the stovetop especially when you consider the time it takes to bring the water bath up to temperature.
