Back to basics...how to cook rice perfectly?

fauchon | Jun 18, 2007 05:46 AM

I don't have a rice cooker and don't want one. I want to be able to cook rice perfectly (dry, fluffy not sticky) on a gas stove. Are there diffferent techniques for, say, jasmine, basmati, bhutanese etc? After the liquid comes to a boil, exactly how much of a simmer? Timing? Most recipes say 20 mins but sometimes that doesn't seem enough. Do you rinse your rice first? Soak it? Drape a towel beneath the cover of the pot to absorb steam?

I have been disappointed in my rice & would appreciate all tips, advice, recs...thanks!
