A lot of you reach out and ask about how to cook the perfect rice , not BBC way but Asian style .
Thanks to Uncle Roger and hers , Patel .
I guess .
No worries .
This video is here to answer the two most important questions .
First , how to use your finger to measure rice ?
You get a chance to see this in a bit .
Secondly , how to steam the best fluffy rice Asian way .
Washing the raw grains is a crucial step and you can't skip this .
This is not only for the hygiene reason but also help to remove the starch from the surface .
These will ensure a light and fluffy end results .
Ideally , you want to wash them under coal running water .
It's done when the water becomes clear .
So the signal is pretty clear , right ?
Make sure you don't waste the rinse water , use them for gardening or even for your face cleansing routine .
Here comes the secret that's been passed on from my great great group group grandmother .
We call it the magical finger flatten the rice , pop your finger into the rice , make a hole and use the line on your finger as a marker .
Now you have to look at the middle fallings , fill the water to the exact location as they were in the proximal .
That is it .
That's how to get it right every single time .
Now , rice cooking , firstly , turn up the heat and bring it to boil ones is boiled .
Give it a good stir and turn it to the lowest possible heat .
At this stage , you have to put on the lid and let the rice cook and simmer for 10 minutes .
When the timer goes off , turn off the heat .
But please don't remove the cover and you have to let the rise steam for a further five minutes .
It would be ideal to have a rice cooker .
But to be honest , it's not the end of the world and I have still been able to cook the best white rice with a stainless steel pan .
If you wanted to get a rice cooker .
Try Argos .
I managed to find one for just under 10 quid .
Look at the rice .
The texture is perfect .
It's not only soft and not hard either .
Now let me give this a go .
Oh my .
