"Just boil it hard for 8-10 minutes." You're a fuckin moron.

In Indonesia, turmeric rice is usually cooked with coconut milk and pandan leaves.
Also, we don't use that much turmeric for that little amount of rice. Turmeric is just for colouring. It'll taste bitter if you put it too much.

and if you like creamy rice you should use baldo rice from Mediterranean area and put more water to it and at the end butter if you wish.

How is that rice he cooks in the first place is "nutty"??, it's plain basmati rice boiled with water and salt….. No sure how the"nutty" flavour has been achieved, my opinion at least

Is saffron cheaper in the UK, or something? It's next to impossible to find in the States without some digging.

Eww the amount of turmeric on that rice is ridiculous.

omg all that saffron ??? that spice is far too delicate to just be dumped into a pot like that

This only works with Basmati rice – long-grain Patna rice needs 1 cup of rice to 1 and a half cups of water and takes 20 minutes. I usually heat up the rice in a little oil, add salt and the water and leave it covered in the oven for 20 minutes.

So did you let it boil for 8-9 minutes straight? cuz I've always thought when it comes to a boil you turn the fire down & let it simmer for a time.

I am Iranian and rice is the national diet of half the world. These instructions are totally inadequate. I know over 100 different type of rices dishes. Rice is delicate to cook and you can ruin it very easily. There are few types of cooking methods of rice:1. Boil it as above and you it will fill you up but leaves no after taste and satisfaction. But it is okay.2. Italian style Risotto where you fry the rice and the add water and it instantly absorbs it. I hardly make it and it tastes like pasta.3. Chinese fried rice, which… Read more »

You are to soak the rice for 30 minutes before cooking in a pan. Its very dangerous to cook rice without soaking it. A recent study just came out proving that the rice cooked without soaking has a dangerous level of arsenic that is usually washed away by soaking it. So please don't cook the wrong way.

Ah come on! Uncle Ben's?! Try something like Royal brand or Tilda and use the 1 cup rice to 1 1/2 cup water ratio. It comes out nice and firm. And always rinse imported rice to remove the starch! Also if you want to add spices, toast them a bit in some oil. Comes out great every time.

you call that a rice?! OMG :))) rice has to be cooked in a way that is not sticky. I call that sticky! Iranians are good in making rice specially we decorate the top with saffron rice. we soak the rice 2 hours before cooking it and we add salt. the salt will actually make the rice not sticky during the cooking. we boil the water and we add the rice to cook in the water like pasta till it softens a little. then a you strain the rice. then you put back the rice in the pot and you… Read more »

To all the people complaining he didn't wash his rice. He's using Uncle Ben's rice, which is pre-washed. You don't have to rinse Uncle Ben's rice. It's ready to cook right out of the package.

"On the hob"??? Do you English have a slang term for everything? If you tell someone in the U.S. or Canada to keep something on the hob, they might slap you in the face. 🙂
By the way, I love England; it's just that U.S. and England are separated by a common language.

I never have any luck cooling rice. I followed these instructions, and the rice still turned out sticky and gloopy – it's annoying me now.

Is that a pan ? It looks more like a pot to me. What it is made of ?
I think the vessel's material in which he cooks the rice matter as well right ?
