Fluffy rice can be used in a variety of culinary applications from sushi to stir fry to casseroles. Rice can be cooked in the microwave, a rice maker or even on the hob. No matter the method used, obtaining fluffy and cooked rice can be a difficult task. When you add too much water to the rice before cooking it can result in a soggy texture that is not appetizing, but not worthy of being throw away just yet either.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Fix in a saucepan. Place rice in a saucepan if it was cooked in a bowl or rice cooker. Place the saucepan over low heat on the hob and cook to help evaporate the extra moisture in the rice. Fluff the rice with a fork and rotate it around in the pot to help the liquid evaporate evenly.

  2. 2

    Fix in the oven. Preheat the oven to the lowest temperature setting. Turn the rice out onto a baking tray that is not lined. Cook in the oven until the liquid has evaporated and the rice is slightly dried out. Fluff the rice with a fork.

  3. 3

    Fix in the microwave. Place soggy rice on a microwave-safe plate and heat in the microwave for several minutes until the water has evaporated and the rice is sticky. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Tips and warnings

  • Prepare overly soggy rice in rice pudding, casserole or stew recipes when drying methods do not work instead.
