Learn how to make the fluffiest island style toasted coconut Caribbean rice
The secret to cooking rice without the aid of a rice cooker is finding the correct balance of liquid to 1 part of rice grains. The 1 part rice and 2 parts liquid is the desired sweet spot for fluffy (not mushy rice)
As a general rule, rice shouldn’t be too moist and also shouldn’t be too drying either, you’re looking for a fine balance – somewhere in between (see picture).
Don’t keep stirring the rice, once the rice is brought to the boil, cover and allow to simmer for the stated time.
