How to make the recipe
For this recipe you require fluffy and al dente cooked rice. If you have precooked rice you may proceed to the next section.
Pour 3 cups of water in a large pot and bring it to a boil. Add 1 tsp oil to the water.
Meanwhile rinse rice well a few times in a colander or in a bowl to remove all of the surface starch. Soak the rice until the water comes to a boil.
When the water begins to boil rapidly, drain the water from the rice and add it to the water.
Let the rice cook until al dente, meaning fully cooked yet firm and not mushy. Drain the rice to a colander. Cover and set aside. Let cool completely. If the rice is overcooked by mistake, simply drizzle some oil over the rice and spread it on a tray and cool completely.
