How To Make Rice In A Pot Instructions

Cook Time: 10 minutes

  1. Place the rice in a saucepan and run some cold water to rinse the rice.                       
  2. Cover the rice with water and then sneeze it gently between your fingers. You will see the water start to go cloudy.
  3. Pour that water away and repeat this process two or three times until the water runs clear.
  4. Once most of the starch has been rinsed away drain all the water from the saucepan.
  5. Add the salt.
  6. Now add the water to the rice. One cup of water to one cup of rice.
  7. Place the saucepan on the stove and turn the heat up high.
  8. Start to bring the water to a boil and as soon as you see the rice starting to ‘dance’ in the water around the edge turn the bass off.
  9. Cover the pan with a towel, push the lid on top of that so it fits tightly and then you’ll fold the four corners of the towel back over the lid so it doesn’t catch on fire.
  10. Move the pan to a low gas ring and turn that on to the lowest possible heat.
  11. Cook that for 10 minutes but don’t lift the lid.
  12. Remove the pan from the heat.
  13. The rice is now ready to serve. Remove the lid and gently mix it through to fluff the rice.

*Electric Stove Tips*

Steve recently had to cook on electric for a couple of months. which was a great chance to test this method.

He had no real trouble at all getting it to work. He used one ring, on high, to bring the Rice to a dancing edge but because Electric stoves don’t cool as quick as Gas, it’s important to move it to a fresh ring on low (make sure it is already on low, a cold plate will zap the heat out of your pot) on his hob setting, 2 seemed to work best. It came out perfect time and time again.
