TIPS FOR COOKING RICE

1. We usually use long-grain rice or medium-grain rice but you can use another type of rice. Long-grain rice is looser while medium-grain rice is creamier and absorb much more the flavors.
Rice cooking time: about 10 to 12 minutes for long-grain rice and 13 to 15 minutes for medium-grain rice.

2. The amount of water for the rice depends on each person's taste. The mesure we usually use is 250 ml (about 1 cup) to 300 ml (1 1/3 cups) of water per 100 grams (1/2 cup) rice.

3. Always cook the rice with a lid and over low heat to prevent the rice from burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan.
