White RiceHow to cook white rice? How to prepare the perfect white rice?

People keep asking me this question, so I decide today to tell you how to, step by step, make white rice. In Barranquilla (Colombia) is called “voladito” or “suelto” this will translate to something like Fluffy or Loose.

I think that we all have different ways to prepare the simple white rice, and they are all valid ways. In fact, I differ from my mother, from whom I learned my love of cooking. It also makes a difference in which type of rice, or oil you use.

This article is for to those people that are just starting in the art of cooking.

The trick is to add the right amount of water to make it fluffy.

 Tips for perfect White Rice:

Some people like to wash the rice before cooking it. I personally, don’t wash the rice. If you prefer to do it, just place the rice in a colander and place under the kitchen faucet, until the water comes clear. Then follow the directions above.

If you ever burn your rice, place a peel onion inside the pot and leave it for a few minutes. That will help the burn scent go away.
