How to make the perfect rice for lemon rice

Creating the perfect base for authentic lemon rice means ensuring that every cooked grain is fluffy and non-sticky. At the same time, one needs to be careful that the rice is not half-boiled, with a raw core.

  • Step

    1
    Wash rice

    Thoroughly wash rice at least 4-5 times.

  • Step

    2
    Boil rice

    In a vessel, add rice along with a generous amount of water (so that the water is 4-5 inches over the rice bed). Bring to a boil.

  • Step

    3
    Replenish

    If while boiling, the water level goes down, replenish it adequately. Make sure that there is enough water to strain.

  • Step

    4
    Check texture

    After it has been on the boil for about 15 minutes, check the texture of the rice by mashing a few grains between your fingers. Ideally, the grains should not have a hard core, but they should not be mushy either.

  • Step

    5
    Drain starch

    Once the rice is done, put it through a strainer to drain out the starch.

  • Step

    6
    Transfer to bowl

    After it has sat in the strainer for 4-5 minutes, transfer the rice to a wide serving bowl and fluff it up with a fork.
