Ingredients for easy and fast rice:
Rice, you should use about 250 gram for a full pot. You can also use a regular drinking cup and fill one for 2 grownups and then add on as you need it. Basmati rice is the best but any rice will do for this recipe.
Oil, this recipe takes about 4-5 table spoons of oil. Never use olive oil!
Salt, use 1 to 2 table spoons for a full pot of rice, For 2 drinking cups of rice it is enough with 0.5 to 1 table spoon of salt.
Wash the rice
For basmati rice it is ideal to leave it in water for 20 minutes or so. You should change this water every now and then to get rid of the white color and clean the rice. If you are a busy Mom you can also clean the rice under running water as you can see in the beginning of the video below.
Put Oil in the Pot and Add the Rice
Next step is to add the rice and some of the water to a pot with the oil. Start up a low flame and mix this with the salt.
Add Boiling Water
Now you add water that you have preheated and it should stand about a finger top above the rice, or 0.5-1 cm if you will.
Mix the rice well and let it come to a boil before you lower the flame and let it cook with a towel wrapped around the lid for the prescribed time of the rice. Once the rice is done you let it rest a few minutes and then stir it well again to avoid the lumpy texture that so easily happens with rice.
