Cooking steamed rice

Cooking precious rice is like a poesie, it has to be thoughtful & delicate.

Washing

Rinse your rice thoroughly with water, repeating the process 3 times until the water runs clear.

Combine the rice with 400ml of water and let it soak for 30 minutes. (Directly into the chosen pot)

This step allows the rice grains to hydrate and ensures uniform cooking.

Place the lid on the pot with a kitchen cloth underneath.

Cook on high heat for 8 to 9 minutes. Listen carefully, you need to hear it boil.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer for an additional 9 to 10 minutes, then turn off the heat.

If you have a rice cooker : you just have press the start button and let it do the rest.

Lorsque la cuisson est terminée

Let the rice rest covered for 15 mins without opening the lid.

Then open the lid and discover the gorgeous, fluffy rice you've so carefully sublimated.

Mix the rice gently with a spatula and let it cool slightly.
