    Note: For Dehradoon Basmati Rice generally two and a half to three cups of water & Juice mix is used. Different varieties of rice and different juices (depending on the juice thickness) will require different amount of liquid. For Guava Juice e.g. total 3 cups of liquid is needed. While for Pomegranate Juice two and a half cup is adequate. If trying another juice first heat a small quantity to check if it retains its flavor and taste. For larger flavor use more juice than water. Next Experiment with cooking rice in wine
