To get the rice just right—light, fluffy, unsticky—takes one part skill and two parts love.
Servings: Serves 3
- 2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk (optional)
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 cup white rice
In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water, oil and coconut milk (if using) to a boil. Add salt and rice. Reduce heat to low and cook covered until water is completely absorbed, about 25 minutes. Grains should be tender and separate.
