How can something that appears so simple be so hard!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had problems boiling rice. I’ve tried a couple of steamers, adding oil, frying the rice in butter first…. but results seemed to range. I’ve just come across an article that covers how to boil rice – http://shiokfood.com/notes/archives/000018.html
Basically, it seems you rinse it lots, soak it for 30 minutes, drain, put in pan with 1.5x the amount of water there is rice, boil it for 15-20 minutes (although.. my rice packet said 10, i did 15 and it came out perfect) with a tight fitting lid, DO NOT LIFT THE LID. once cooked, remove from heat and DO NOT LIFT THE LID for another 10 minutes.
