How to cook perfect rice, saving time and money
This method will produce enough for four portions. You can use any rice but remember that brown rice is better for you.
WHAT YOU' LL NEED
FOR THE 1-2 METHOD IE: ONE CUP OF RICE TO TWO CUPS OF WATER
A large saucepan with a lid
A large measuring cup, or large cup
One measure of rice, ONE CUP = 400 mils or 14 fluid ounces. (I always use Basimit rice but you can use any.)
A large handful of frozen peas (Optional)
A sprinkle of mixed herbs
A large 25 gram knob of either Butter/Ghee/Margarine
Boiling water. TWO CUPS = 800 mils or 28 fluid ounces
WHAT TO DO
Pour the one cup of rice into the saucepan, and then pour in the boiling water. Then add the butter (or ghee or margarine.) Add the large handful of peas (Optional) and a sprinkle of mixed herbs and turn on the gas to bring to a boil, stirring a little as the water starts to boil.

Once the rice has boiled for a few minutes, stirs again leaving the lid on the saucepan and then TURN OFF the heat.
Checking back in a about 5 minutes, and you will see that the rice is starting to absorb the water. If you still have water in saucepan then lightly stir the rice and turn the heat back on and with the lid on and bring to a boil, reheating the rice, then turn off again. Allow the rice to sit while you get on with the other part of the meal.
And it is done! Perfect rice every time and it cost less pennies, because you have used less gas,, you will also have no need to drain or wash any of the goodness away.
