How to do it

Many people try to cook rice by stirring a lot, boiling too much, looking at the rice with the lid removed.


The best rice is cooked very simple.


3 cups of rice will feed 4 – 6 people


Place the rice in a pan and mix in 1 level teaspoon salt


Boil a kettle and carefully add 1 3/4 cups of boiling water per cup of rice used


Loosen the grains with a fork, not taking more than 10 seconds to do this – it you keep stirring you will knock the starch from the grains and get sticky rice

Simmer with a tight fitting lid on the pan for 17 minutes


After 17 minutes take off the heat, leave the lid on (No peeping!) and leave to continue steaming for 3 minutes


Loosen the rice with a fork and then serve
