    Chefs Tips

    It is always best to pre-cook your rice, cool it and dry it out the day before.

    The secret to perfect rice is to stop it cooking straight away by running it under cold water, just pur the pan into a sink and run cold water into the pan.

    Don't run the water too fast as the rice will flow out, and remember to stir the starch out occasionally with a fork as the rice is cooling.

    Brown rice is a healthier alternative to white rice. I have used Basmati rice because it is a smaller grain rice and it cooks fast. Basmati Rice 💬
