I don't know about white basmati, but brown basmati is more forgiving than regular, long grain, brown rice. DH was asked to turn off the rice while I was out grocery shopping. He forgot. I got home more than an hour after the rice should have been done. It was fine, albeit a little bit crispy on the bottom, but we like that.

I have tried tons of different rices in rice cooker and never had this happen. I also store rices for up to year before using them. I go 2-1 for Brown Basmati (my fav right now) and a bit less water for white.(about 1 3/4- 1). Maybe your taste buds were just off for the night. Did you use the same water? That can effect it. Did you serve with totally different dishes?

Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.
