How To Make Perfect Rice
Rice. The easiest thing to cook. So why do so many people get it so wrong? I'll let you in to my secret of how to cook perfect rice.
1 and a half cups of basmati rice
1 and three quarter cups of boiling water
Start by washing the rice in cold water (put the rice in a sieve and rinse with cold water). Make sure you have a non-stick pan that has a tight fitting lid. Put the pan on a high heat with a glug of oil. Put the washed rice in the pan and stir. Season with salt and add the boiling water. Put the lid on and when the pan is boiling turn the heat down to its lowest setting. Cook for 17 minutes. You will have beautifully steamed rice - all you have to do is fork it through gently to separate the grains.
