Cooking rice can be tricky, especially if you’re not used to doing it. Overcooked, undercooked, or sticky rice can ruin an otherwise delicious meal. However, with this simple kitchen tip, you can make perfectly cooked rice every time.
To make perfectly cooked rice, use a 1:2 ratio of rice to water. For example, if you’re cooking 1 cup of rice, add 2 cups of water to your pot. Bring the water to a boil, add the rice, then reduce the heat to low and cover the pot with a lid. Let the rice simmer for about 18-20 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed. Remove the pot from the heat and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
This simple tip ensures that the rice is cooked to perfection, with each grain perfectly fluffy and separate from one another. It’s an easy way to elevate your cooking and impress your dinner guests.
