Restaurant Perfect Rice Hack

Sticky, squishy rice is the worst! Use good quality rice every time you cook, as well as our 3 top tips to make sure your rice is never sticky again.

  1. Always use the correct proportions: 1.5 parts water to 1 part rice white rice, by volume not weight. Or if you’re cooking cooking brown rice, use 2 parts water. Rice cooks by absorption, so too much liquid will make your rice overcooked and gluggy.
  2. Don’t stir while it’s cooking, if you stir hot rice, you break the grains and release the starches, making it sticky
  3. Fluff gently with a fork after it has finished steaming off the heat with the lid on.
