I've been asked alot lately how to cook rice and if it matters what brand of rice is best to buy.
This method is so simple it even makes supemarket own brand rice brilliant.
First warm a good glug of oil in a sauce pan.
Then measure out 1 cup of rice and chuck it in. Keep stirring it so all the grains are coated. Cook the rice until it starts talking to you ( you will know what I mean when it happens, its like a sizzle ).
Then lob in 2 cups of hot water and bring to the boil.
When its boiled for a minute bang the lid on, turn the heat off and leave it. Never take off the lid until atleast 20 mins has gone.
Serve immediately or cool it down ( refresh ) with cold running water if you are going to use it for fried rice.
Because this method absorbs all the water you can muck about with flavours and use stock instead.
Never heat rice more than twice, so if you have made fried rice don't reheat the left overs. You could be very ill!!!
