Cook Rice To Perfection
The Ingredients are Rice and Water.
For 2 serves, put a cup of uncooked grains in a saucepan
Add 1 1/2 cups of water
Bring it to a rapid boil on high.
Here it is bubbling and frothing away
When you see that, turn down the heat to
the lowest setting to simmer quietly
If you're using an electric stove, the residual high heat will mean that the water may boil over.
Tip the lid so that it is able to cool down sufficiently to prevent a mess from spills.
Then put the lid on firmly for it to simmer gently for about 12 - 15 minutes.
Turn the heat off immediately and
keep the lid on tightly. Leave it alone for another 10 minutes
Don't stir. Don't keep peeking at it.
It's perfect after the 10 minutes of cooking in its internal heat.
It will look like this - you can see full individual grains and it is not sticky.
Now, this is perfectly cooked rice
Fluff it up beautifully with a flat spatula
And...it's ready to be served.
