There are plenty of ways to cook rice; trust us, it doesn’t always have to be a job for the hob! Here are 4 easy methods that’ll make you feel like a whizz in the kitchen.

At VeeTee, we’ve spent years researching rice dishes from across the world, so we know that rice is nothing if not versatile! And that applies to cooking methods, too. While the hob is a favoured method for many, it’s not the only approach to cooking rice that works – good news for those of us with traumatic memories of burnt pans.

We’re sharing 4 ways to cook rice that suit all dishes and abilities. From the hob to the rice cooker, the oven and the microwave – we don’t care how you cook your VeeTee rice, as long as you enjoy eating it!

On The Hob

On The Hob
  1. Rinse your rice with cold water and measure it into a pan. (As a rule, we say 2 parts water to 1 part rice!
  2. Simmer with a pinch of salt until the water has absorbed.

In A Rice Cooker

  1. Prepare your rice by rinsing in cold water.
  2. Measure out 1 part rice to 2 parts water into the rice cooker.

  3. Add seasoning or any additional ingredients.

  4. Turn the rice cooker on and let the magic happen!

Using The Microwave

Using The Microwave

  2. Transfer your rinsed rice and water into a microwaveable bowl.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes and let it stand for a further 10 minutes. Hey presto, you're done!

Oven Baked

  1. Rinse and measure your rice as usual... (Half a cup is usually enough for one person!)
  2. Transfer into a ceramic baking dish and add the water.
  3. Season and cover the dish, before cooking for 30 mins at 180c/350F - easy!
