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.
