Jamie Oliver’s ‘foolproof’ recipe for ‘fluffy’ rice takes eight minutes

Chef Jamie Oliver has a “foolproof” trick for making fluffy rice that’s “super simple” and only takes eight minutes.

Rice is a common food in our kitchens, but do you know how to make it perfect every time? Don’t worry, Jamie Oliver is here to show us how.

Rice is used in many dishes like curries, paellas, stir-fries, and risotto.

Even though we eat a lot of it, rice can be tricky to cook right. Whether it’s too much or not good quality – like sticky, clumpy grains – most people find it hard to make the perfect rice dish.

But don’t worry, celebrity chef Jamie has a fool-proof way to make fluffy rice every time. And you don’t need any fancy tools, you can follow his recipe with basic kitchen stuff.

So, how does it work? First, put a big pot of salted water on the stove and let it start to boil. Then rinse your rice (about 350g) in a colander until the water is clear. This helps get rid of some of the starch, which stops the grains from sticking together and getting sticky.

Here’s a simple way to cook rice: Boil it for five minutes, drain it and cover with foil. Add a bit of water back into the pan, let it boil then simmer. Put the drained rice on top and let it steam for about ten minutes. Easy peasy!

But if you’re looking for an even easier method, microwaveable packets of rice are your best friend. A mum recently shared a “life-changing” tip on TikTok that makes using these packets a breeze.

The mom, known as @budgetingmum, revealed her discovery in a video. “I was today years old when I discovered this hack.” she said, showing a packet of Asda’s golden veg micro rice. She pulled apart two tabs at the bottom of the packet, creating a stand. “No more falling over,” she happily declared.

She wrote in the caption: “Anyone else not realise that if you pull these bits open at the bottom of the rice, it stands up and doesn’t fall over in the microwave.”

Her video has since received over 400,000 likes and hundreds of comments.
