White Rice

Getting fluffy, fully-cooked white rice without burning the bottom isn’t hard, but there are a few steps to make the process a little easier. You’ll always want to rinse white rice in a sieve until the water is clear to remove excess starch that can make the rice gummy and unevenly cooked. You should also let the rice steam for five minutes before you fluff with a fork, so that the rice doesn’t dry out or get clumpy. Enjoy your now-perfect rice!
