"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 ("Reis").
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.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
