Pick the rice over and put in a bowl. Wash in several changes of water. Drain. Pour 3 times the water you have rice over the rice and let soak for 30 minutes hour. Drain thoroughly. Combine the rice, salt, butter and the water in a pot. Bring to a boil. Cover with a tight fitting lid, turn heat to very low and cook for 20 minutes. Lift the lid, mix gently but quickly with a fork and cover again. Cook for 5-10 minutes until tender.
Your Basmati Chaaval is ready. Buon appetito!
