Plain rice or boiled rice (steamed rice) is very easy to cook and can be eaten with any curry.

Cooking Time: App. 15-20 Minutes
Serves: 2 People

Plain Rice


1 cup of basmati rice (you can use any rice)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups of water

Plain White Rice

Cooking Method:

1. Take the rice in a large pan and wash it (pour water into the pan and take it out by keeping your hand on the edge of the pan).

2. Boil 3 cups of water in the kettle and add into the rice pan.

3. Keep the pan on the full heat and add salt.

4. Cook the plain rice for 10-12 mins on full heat to medium. It will need stirring in between as it will start rise and flow.

5. Check the rice taking one in your finger (be careful, it will be too warm) and pressing it. If it soft, it’s cooked.

6. Now place all rice into the sieve, all water will be filtered from the rice. Leave for 2-3 mins to get rid of all water. Then replace back to the pan.

Serve plain white rice hot with any curry recipe.Steamed Rice
