Hi , I'm Chef Rafa and welcome to today's video today .
It's a tips video on how to make your rice to come out like this a single grain whereby it's not mashed , it's not overcooked .
It's a simple guide and I'm sure you learned something .
Let's get started .
So I'm now making two cups of rice and for two cups of rice , I will need three cups of water .
So the first thing you need to do is establish which cup you will use .
So now I'm using this cup and I'll be measuring two cups of rice .
So the next thing is to wash the rice .
Now , depending on the amount of starch your rice has , um I would say clean it up to two times .
Put the first water mix , pour off the water , put another batch of water and then pour it off .
That should be enough .
So for the water , my ratio for cooking rice is one cup of rice for 1.5 cups of water .
So now I have two cups of rice , I will need three cups of water after the rice is clean , place it in the cooking pot and mind you , you don't have to wait for the water to boil .
You can place , you can actually add the rice to cold water or to boiling water .
When the water starts boiling with the rice in , you need to reduce the heat to the minimum so that it comes to a simmer .
When you're using this method of cooking rice , it takes about 12 minutes to cook .
Now at minute , nine or 10 , open the pan stir it .
And at this time , I usually like tasting the rice so that I can sell if I need more salt or not to avoid rice from over cooking .
It's always good to stir so that the rice on the bottom comes on top and the one on top goes to the bottom .
And in around 12 minutes , the rice will be cooked , just make sure you taste so that you are sure that it's fully cooked and turn off the heat .
