A properly cooked pot of rice is nearly invaluable in the kitchen. It acts as staple, starch, and sometimes, a starting point for meals. But because cooking it can often be tricky, Bon Appetit shows us how to avoid clumpiness and achieve fluffiness in your grains.
They tested almost a dozen batches, adjusting key factors like rice to liquid ratio, fat, salt, and cooking time in each. What did they find? We’ll let let them give you the official, master recipe, but in the process, they also discovered a pretty brilliant tip for preventing excess cooking water from getting incorporated into your rice as it cooks.
