Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Bring a generous amount of water to the boil in a cooking pot.

 Take the required amount of rice (+/- 75 g of uncooked rice per person) and put it in a sieve. Rinse the rice with cold water and drain.

Step 3

Add a pinch of salt to the boiling water and cook the rice in it for 8-10 minutes.
Stir the rice from time to time while cooking so that it does not stick to the bottom.
