Boiled Rice

Prepare a simple boiled rice> All you need is a medium-sized saucepan with a well fitting lid, a sieve, a fork, a teaspoon, and measuring cups. White rice is usually clean and does not need washing to remove dust or husk bits like brown rice does. This extra step rinses off excess starch and ensures that the cooked rice is not sticky.

directions

  • Measure the rice and tip into a sieve. Wash the rice under running cold water until it runs clear.
  • then tip the rice,oil, salt and water into a microwave-proof bowl -a Pyrex bowl is fine- with a lid that will allow steam to pass. Alternatively, cover the bowl tightly with microwavable film and pierce this three or four times with a sharp pointed knife. Cook on high for 5 minutes; then on defrost for 10-12 minutes. The rice will stay hot for up to 15 minutes if you keep it covered. I recommend this procedure only for white rice.

    Cooking on defrost for the bulk of the cooking time really made all the difference - no boil over! Thanks, I'll be making basmati like this again.
