You don’t need a rice cooker to make amazing rice. In this video, Chef John shows you how to make perfect white rice every time. It’s so easy. The first thing is to start with fragrant, flavorful basmati rice. And if you don’t have basmati? That’s fine, too; this method will work with any long-grain white rice. Once you have your rice selected, it’s really all about proportions and technique. And Chef John will show you the ropes. It’s the perfect rice to enjoy with Chef John’s Caramel Chicken, stews, sauces, braised meats, plus all manner of Asian dishes.
