How To, Kitchen Whispers

Cook Rice

While I highly encourage you to read the instructions on the packet, this is the way I cook my rice:

  1. Rinse it and strain it
  2. Add half a tbsp of olive oil in a pot
  3. On medium heat, add rice to oil and let it fry for 3-4 min. Keep mixing
  4. Add water: for each cup of rice, I add 2.5 cups of water
  5. Bring to boil, then cover and let it simmer on very low heat

The rice should be cooked and water completely evaporated after 18 – 20 min!

Once done, I usually add cinnamon to the rice while still warm.

People cook their rice differently, and I’ve read recipes that use way less/more water than I do. But this is how I’ve always done it, and it works like a charm!
