HOW TO COOK PERFECT RICE
THE PERFECT RICE
Learn how to cook rice perfectly every time so it’s fluffy and soft. Say goodbye to sticky, mushy, undercooked or overcooked rice.
Rice Water Salt
Add the rinsed rice, water and salt to a pot on the stove. Bring to a boil over high heat. Stir the rice once, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 18-20 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and let rice rest covered for about 5-10 minutes to firm up. Remove lid and fluff rice with a fork.
Rinse the rice. Rinsing the rice removes dusty starch that can lead to sticky or gummy grains.
Use a tight-fitted lid. Use a good lid so the steam and moisture don’t escape during the simmering cook time.
Cook the rice on low heat. Cooking rice on low guarantees that you will have well-cooked rice that is not over-or undercooked.
Great post! I am super picky about white rice. I like mine fluffy and what I call on the dry side. I hate sticky rice. Great post with a lot of helpful tips.
