I’ve never cooked rice this fluffy in my life. Here’s why…

February 17, 2014

I’m not going to lie, when I first moved out of home I had no idea how to cook rice. You would think that’s one of the things one would know at my age, but nonetheless it took a lot of burning the rice, under-cooking it and just failing for me to eventually figure it out. It’s actually pretty easy!

Always remember it’s a 1:2 ratio – so 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice.

Step 1: Rinse the rice several times until it is no longer ‘milky’ – no one ever told me to rinse my rice, I swear it makes all the difference.

Step 2: Put the rice in the pan and add the water then bring both the rice and the water to the boil

Step 3: As soon as the water starts boiling, reduce the heat and cover the pot. Leave the rice on low for about 10-15 minutes (I generally leave it for 15 minutes but usually check it around the 10 minute mark)

Step 4: You will know that the rice is ready when it has swollen and there is no more water.

Step 5:¬†Once it’s cooked, remove the lid and fluff with a fork. Let the rice cool.
