    I’ve done a couple of searches but haven’t found anything other using sea water and that’s not an idea for me as i’m cruising around the North Sea this summer and water’s dubious enough for swimming let alone food prep.

    Thanks for your advise.

    = quants of rice & cold water,place lid on pan bring to the boil DO NOT REMOVE LID TO LOOK, turn off heat & leave in the ring. After exactly 20 mins remove lid fluff-up with a fork & serve, 100% results every time

    Never wash rice, it takes on the water and becomes soggy

    Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan and add the rice stir well to seal to seal the rice while you boil a kettle of water. Cover the rice in boiling water, reduce the heat and put on the lid, do nothing for 15 minutes, then fluff with a fork and serve. simples

    Remember you will eat the rice after it is cooked. If you are using chopsticks a certain amount of stickyness is good.
    The last time I was in London's Chinatown, the rice was definitely sticky.

    Uncle Ben rice can be used.
    Boil in a bag is easier.

    Opened a can of worms here.

    The cooking of the rice isnít the problem, it was just the washing of the rice prior to cooking to get rid of the starch. A couple of ideas that I can take from your input so thanks your replies.

    I think it depends a lot on the rice. I cooked some expensive sushi rice yesterday and washed it and it was perfect, just a little sticky. Good Basmati rice needs no washing. Quality American long grain also. Really cheap rice is a sticky mess no matter what you do to it.
