I am not sure exactly why White Rice is so tricky to cook.

Either it is hard and uncooked or starchy and mushy. There is a fine line of a few minutes *if not watched, that can ruin your Rice in an instant.

If you like your White Rice fluffy and a little sticky, here is the Easiest Recipe for you:

How to Cook Perfect White Rice Recipe


  • 1 tsp. Butter
  • 3/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1 cup White Rice
  • 2 cups Water


  • In a saucepan, melt Butter.
  • Add White Rice and stir for one minute until fully coated.
  • Add Water and Salt.
  • Reduce heat to super low.

  • * Cover with tight fitting lid. Make sure the lid has air holes or cock the lid to let out steam.
  •  Simmer on low 10 minutes. Do not stir.  The water should have all boiled off the top.
  •  Shut the Heat OFF. Cover tightly with the lid and let it sit to Steam for another 10 minutes untouched.

  •  Lift the lid and lightly fluff with a fork. Cover again and leave for 2 minutes.

Total Time: 22 Minutes. (10 minutes Simmered super low. Steamed for 10 minutes. Rested for 2 minutes before Serving).

Perfect Rice Every Time.

  • If your Rice starts overflowing – lift the lid to release the Steam. Then re-cover and lower the heat even more. The trick is low and slow Steaming. No stirring until the end.
