Points to remember

  • Wash and rinse the rice really well, until the water is clear.
  • Drain.
  • Place in a saucepan with double the amount of water and a little salt and stir once. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat all the way down and cover the pan tightly with a lid.
  • Cook on the lowest heat possible for 10-15 mins without uncovering the pan.
  • Use a fork to fluff up the cooked rice.
