"How to boil rice?" "How to have it nice and fluffy - not sticky?" "How to cook rice easily?" Even, "How to steam rice?" Every had these questions? Well, here's your answer! If you're planning a traditional German meal, or perhaps a Chinese meal without the take-out, try this hint for making perfect rice, aka Reis, EVERY TIME!
The trickiest part in making rice traditional way was the timing to get it just right. This method is so fool-proof, combining boiling and steaming.
The boiling gets the rice cooking quickly. The steaming finishes it off.
You need a medium to large pot and a large sieve that fits it, so that the sieve spans the top of the pot and the bottom of the sieve sits at least 2 inches from the bottom of the pot.

Many years ago, as a young wife, I was watching the Galloping Gourmet on TV. The boil/steam method is what he was showing AND it's been the only way I've made my rice since then. That's over 40 years ago! When something is this easy and good, why change it!
