How to Microwave Rice

How to Microwave Rice
  1. Pick a good quality rice! (Yes, this really is important.) We use VeeTee Supreme Basmati for consistent results every time.
  2. Measure out 1 cup of rice per 2 people, then rinse with cold water. Before you ask, no, it’s not a myth. Rinsing rice gets rid of excess starch that gives rice a gluey consistency.
  3. Add 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice in a heatproof bowl and cover.
  4. Microwave for 10 minutes and wait for the PING!

  5. Leave to steam cook for a further 10-15 minutes. And that’s it!
