Microwaving Trader Joe's Brown Basamati Rice

I was overjoyed to find that Trader Joe's carries brown basamati rice, but I'd really like to microwave it, and there are no non-cooktop intructions on the package. I went so far as to email Trader Joe's requesting a recipe, and they promptly responded, telling me they had nothing.

My Bombay Market brand white basamati rice comes with microwave instructions. I actually like the way the microwaved rice comes out better than the traditional way; it's easier and it comes out fluffier.

If anyone has found a good way of microwaving brown basamati rice, please let me know so I can try it for myself. I know that brown rice requires more time cooking than the white. Thanks!
