For the majority of my life, whenever I cooked rice, it would just all stick together into a nice packed cylinder. Finally I buckled down and figured out how to make super simple fluffy rice :D
Here's what you'll need:
- A pot with a lid
- Rice: the type matters, risotto rice is very difficult to make fluffy, choose long rice.
- Salt: optional, it's really up to you if you want to add it. I feel that slightly salted rice is more delicious, especially if you're not going to be coating it in sauce
- Spoon, or fork.
Now, to start the cooking!
Step 1: Bring rice to boil
In a pot, combine rice with water.
Use 1.5 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice. If you are adding salt, sprinkle it into the water now.
Cook on medium heat in an uncovered pot until it boils.
Note: 1 cup of dry rice actually makes a lot of cooked rice, so don't go too crazy.
