Step 1: rice seems to be labeled a lot as boring or tricky to make so here’s some help to make it easy and interesting!!
Step 3: your rice will have instructions on the back of how much water to rice to use IGNORE THEM!! they do my head in and make more confusion than necessary!
Step 5: 1. get the amount of rice you wana eat (remembering rice swells up when cooked similar to pasta)
Step 6: 2. put it in a cup or container, measureing jugs are perfect if you have one. (make a mental not of where it comes up to in the container)
Step 7: 3. put a little oil in ur pan for the rice when it heats up throw in the dry rice in and stir so its coated
Step 8: 4. you now need to use the container you just used for the rice and fill DOUBLE with water the amount that u did of rice. so rice=50% water=100% total=150%
Step 9: 5. chuck the water in with the rice and give it a good stir
Step 10: 6. crumble in your stock cubes of choice (i usually use one cube for every one pint of water)
Step 11: 7. you need to pop a lid on it now so the water doesnt all evaporate and leave for 5 mins checking every now and then and giving it an occasional stir
Step 12: 8. try it regularly and when its done to your tastes remove and enjoy
Step 14: NOTE: if you start getting low on water and its still hard/firm add SMALL amounts of water to the rice and stir again keep it moist till its done cooking once u feel its done you can remove the lid and let the rest of the water dissapear
