Perfect Rice

The key to great rice is one part rice to 2 parts water, and coating the rice in oil. Use the recipe instructions below and this will give you great perfect rice every time as there is nothing worse than soggy gluppy rice!!


Basmati Rice
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Ground Pepper
Boiling water

Serves 2

What to do:

On a low heat (lowest it can go) heat a pan, add the oil, then a ramekin of rice (if for 4 people add two ramekins and so on...) take your spatula and stir the rice in the oil and make sure every grain of rice is coated in oil. add a pinch of sea salt and pepper.

Handy Tip

By coating the rice in oil this helps the rice not stick together

Once the rice is coated, pour in two ramekins of boiling water and cover. (still on a low heat) This should take around 10 mins but the way to tell its ready is when all the fluid has been soaked up by the rice, please see the pictures attached ( do not stir the rice during this) 

Once the fluid has gone remove from the heat place a tea towel over the pan and place the lid on top ( See picture) and leave for around 10 minutes

Once ready fork the rice and check to taste, the rice should be light and the rice should not be stuck together...perfect and its ready to serve!
