All the tips and tricks for perfect rice!
Say goodbye to soggy rice, and to hours spent scouring the bottom of your pans! Thanks to a few simple tips, your rice will always turn out perfect. Whether it’s sushi, basmati or arborio, simply pick your favourite cooking method for perfect rice every time.
Pan or rice cooker – it’s up to you
So. You love rice in all its forms, but you tend to overcook it or find it stuck to the bottom of your pan. For hassle-free rice, you need to equip yourself with either a rice cooker or a good-quality, non-stick pan. Whichever you choose, the next step is to give your rice a good rinse in cold water.
Ultra practical and ideal for large families (and for anyone who constantly lets their milk or water boil over!), a rice cooker does it all for you. Simply choose your rice, add the required amount of water, switch on… then go read your book or watch your favourite TV programme, while your rice cooker does the rest. Once your rice is cooked, just let it rest for a few minutes before serving with a proud flourish and a “Look what I made!”
If you’re using a pan, don’t forget to check the required cooking time since this varies depending on the type of rice used. When the water starts to boil, pour in your rice stirring all the time, then leave to cook over a medium heat. You can add a stock cube or some herbs to the cooking water, or scatter some saffron over your rice after draining.
