Approximately 1 cup uncooked rice will make 2.5 cups of cooked rice
Free Boiling Method – Rinse well to remove any excess starch on the rice. Bring 4 cups of water to the boil, then add 1 cup of the rinsed rice and stir well to prevent the rice from sticking together. Continue to boil for 10-15mins or until the rice is cooked. Fluff with a fork prior to serving.
Absorption Method – Rinse well to remove any excess starches on the rice, shake of any excess liquid for best results. Place 2 cups of water with 1 cup of rinsed rice into a saucepan (for short/medium grain rice) or 1.75cups of water with 1 cup of rice for long grain. Bring to the boil, stirring gently, then reduce heat, cover; simmer for about 30-40mins or until rice is cooked. Visit our online shop and have your rice delivered to your door.
