• 500 gram long grain
    white Rice
  • 800 ml water ( to parboil
    the rice)
  • 600 ml water ( to cook the rice )
  • 1 teaspoon Salt

sieve to strain out the remaining water.

Step 2: Now, pour the 600ml of water into a pot and let it boil, until it starts to

Step 3: Pour in the parboiled Rice and salt, mix thoroughly and leave to boil on
medium heat, until the rice is done cooking.
Tip: the trick is to make sure that the water in the pot is very hot and at the same
level as the rice. The rice should be tender without becoming soggy.
If the rice is still hard after the water has dried up, add just a little water and simmer
on low, until done.
Finally, serve and enjoy with any, stew or sauce of choice.
