Perfect Steamed Rice Every Time
25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)
2 ingredients

People always ask why my rice comes out perfectly, even though I don't use a rice cooker. Siu Siu Korzilius, my Chinese cooking teacher, taught me that the secret to flaky rice is in the washing. Rice must always be washed before it's cooked to remove the excess starch which keeps it from being sticky. For brown rice, follow these same instructions but add more water (to several inches over the rice) and cook three times as long.
