RICE COOKING METHOD:
Find yourself a high-quality Thai Jasmine rice and rinse thoroughly in cold water until it’s no longer cloudy and runs clear. Do this by filling a bowl or pot with your measured rice and water, agitating with your hands until the water becomes cloudy, then straining and repeating the process 3-5 times.
For every 1 cup of rice, use 1.5 cups of liquid. We recommend using chicken broth instead of water, and optionally a tablespoon of sriracha sauce. Combine the measured rice and liquid into a pan, and give it a light stir. Bring it to a light boil, then cover and turn the heat as low as it goes. Leave the pot covered until the rice has fully soaked in all of the broth. For 2 cups of rice this takes about 12-15 minutes. Once cooked, remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork.
For the best texture for your fried rice, you’ll want to store this in the fridge for a night or two. For best results, lay the rice out on a baking sheet in a thin layer and refrigerate uncovered.
