How to make Indian restaurant-style (white) basmati rice?

I have googled this and found several recipes for 'Indian-style' basmati. However none seems to yield 'restaurant style'.
Every Indian restaurant I've been to in the US has similar rice: mostly white, with a lot of grains dyed half-red. How is this achieved?
I've tried adding saffron, which is a very red spice...but it turns all the grains yellow. I've followed several recipes exactly, and all turn out tasty...but none looks/tastes like what I get in an India restaurant.
