How to Boil Rice
When cooked correctly, long grain rice should be dry and fluffy white separate grains. It is the ideal accompaniment for curries and chillies.
- 1 cup long grain rice
- 2 cups of cold water
- pinch of salt
- saucepan with tight fitting lid
- Put the rice and water into the saucepan and bring to the boil.
- Simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat.
- Put the lid onto the saucepan (if it does not fit tightly, place a clean tea cloth over the pan and push the lid down over it).
- Leave to stand with no heat at all for about 15 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is separate and fluffy.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 2 portions
I boil the water in the kettle first then pour into the saucepan and add the rice. It speeds up the process.

I always rinse my rice in cold water. If nothing else it takes some of excess starch (which makes for sticky rice)out.

Always use twice as much cold water as rice.For example 1 cup of long grain rice should be cooked in two cups of cold water.
