in case I haven't posted it here yet: My grandma showed me the way to make really delicious rice. Take 1 1/2 times the amount of rice of water. If you are unsure, fill the rice in a cup beforehand and then put the 1 1 / 2 times the cup of water in a saucepan. For this, one coated teaspoon of instant broth for every 1 1 / 2 cups, e.g. of Maggi (brew cubes are a bit more concentrated, since then less).
Bring that to the boil and then you add the rice. It is important that as a beginner you take paraboiled rice e.g. by Uncle Bens. Here, however, take the rice out of the bag. Now that you have poured the rice into the boiling water, take the lid of the pot and wrap a towel around it so that the undersurface is completely covered by the towel.
Now turn the hot plate on medium heat and do the lid with the towel on top. The secret is that the towel absorbs the condensation and does not get it back into the pot, making the rice disgustingly soft and spongy. Now leave the whole thing on the flame until there is no water left. Take care that the rice does not burn, so remove the lid with towel and stir.
Done, and you have the most delicious grainy rice there is.
P.S. If it is too grainy, you can still give in water with broth. I still salt the rice at the end, but this is also due to the fact that I like food salty 🙂
