Boil Rice

Written by admin

Boiling rice can be harder than it sounds! Do you rinse the rice? stir it? drain it after cooking? All of your questions answered! No faffing.

Cook Time: 20 mins | Total Time: 20 mins



  • 3 3/4 cups (900ml) water
  • 2 1/2 cups (540g) long grain rice (not easy cook rice)


  • Bring the water to a boil and pour in the rice (no need to rinse). Give it a stir so that the rice is covered by the water, put a lid on the pan and cook for 20 minutes on the lowest heat on your smallest burner – if using gas. Go for a low-medium temperature for induction.
  • After 20 minutes, turn off the heat and remove the lid. Fluff the rice with a fork. Note: the rice will stay hot for a good 30 minutes (with no impact to the texture/flavour) if the lid is left on the pan.
