  5. Thank you sir, you gave the best possible instructions for making rice, as a beginner I appreciate the tips you mentioned along with the brief procedure.. thanks again

  6. Most excellent. this is how I do my rice, long grain, & basmati. sometimes I will rinse with clean hot water after finished cooking and drained if it is still a bit sticky. I make large batches and keep it in the refrigerator for quick use. I found the post cooking rinse makes it still very fluffy even when cold and no loss of flavor. I also add one teaspoon of salt to the water to help in making the water more easily penetrate the grains which reduces cooking time by a little so my rice has a good “bite” to it all the way through. Sometimes the grains can be softer on the outside if cooked just that one or two extra minutes. Before I put the batch in the fridge, I add one tablespoon of sugar. This reacts with any left over starch on the grains and also helps prevent sticking. these are old secrets from a Mexican Food Master I worked with. Using this “free” rice for fried rice dishes makes for a very excellent, free grained rice that colors beautifully with the various colorful ingredients.

    Thank you for a delightful learning experience. I will watch many more of your videos.

Thank you very much Mr. Chef!  After watching your video, I was able for the first time to make great rice just like the Indian restaurant Himani’s in Astoria, Oregon makes.  I have tried many times before, but all of the recipes I found online seem to cook the rice too long.  The rice gets overcooked, and the grains look as if they had exploded.  You recipe is perfect, thank you again!
