One thing you should always do to rice to make it taste better

Food - By Mirror | May 5th 2019 at 08:00:00 GMT +0300

Rice is a key ingredient in many of our diets.

It's cheap, it's not too unhealthy and it has a long old shelf life so you can always have an emergency pack in the cupboard.

But despite most of us cooking it pretty regularly, many will admit to still managing to get it wrong far more often than we should.

"If you picture the starch being microscopic grains of stickiness... as they absorb water, they don't have the ability to stand up to pressure so their structure is pasty.

"Whereas the starch in the rice helps it stand up and be fluffy."

Now all we need to do is work out how to get the portions right...
