I have a knack for making fluffy rice every time. I reveal my secrets here.
1 cup white or brown rice
1-¾ cups water for white rice
2 cups water for brown rice
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp canola, vegetable or extra-light olive oil
To Make It:
The two tricks to fluffy rice are to (1) wash the rice and (2) use a heavy, preferably nonstick, pan with a tight-fitting lid.
So, first put the rice in a strainer or colander and rinse it under cold water for at least two minutes. This will remove the starchy residue that is the main culprit on making rice sticky.
Put the rice into a heavy pan. The heavier the pan, the less likely the rice is to burn. Add water, salt and oil. Put on the stove over medium to medium-high heat until it boils. Stir and reduce heat to simmer. Cook approximately 16 to 20 minutes for white rice, 45 to 50 minutes for brown rice. Fluff before serving.
