A staple part of Asian cooking. By simply adding different ingredients to plain rice, you can create a tasty side dish in minutes.
Wash and drain the rice. Put it in a medium sized pan with salt and add 500 ml of cold water.
Place the lid on and bring to the boil. When the lid starts to rattle, turn the heat down to its lowest setting and cook for 12 minutes.
Take the pan off the heat and, keeping the lid on, leave the rice to steam for another 1o minutes.
