For a beginner cook it could be tricky to cook perfect rice without special equipment like steamer or rice pot. I grew up in Russia, and I did not have any of these pieces, so I had to find a way how to cook it perfectly. Simple. Easy. Convenient.
To get the perfect soft and crumbly rice:
Rice – 100 g
Water, hot boiling – 170ml
Bring water to boil separately.
Combine water, salt and rice in a pot, cover with lid. Prepare timer. Magic begins.
Boil rice, water and salt for 2 minutes. Then, low the heat to medium and keep it simmering for 5 minutes, and 4 minutes over slow heat.
Do not open the lid! Take out the pot with rice from heat and wait for 11 minutes more.
Simple. Follow proportions 100 g rice – 170 ml water. High-medium-low heat for 2-5-4 and 11 minutes. Do not open the lid during all the time.
As the result is soft and crumbly rice.
Simple. Easy. Convenient.
