Keep Rice from Sticking

To keep rice from sticking, spray the sides and bottom of the pot with nonstick vegetable spray before you add the water or rice.

Add a teaspoon of lemon juice to your rice as it starts to boil. It will help prevent it from sticking together.

Keep Rice from Sticking

I cook rice in a rice cooker using the absorption method. To prevent sticking, I remove the rice and fluff it when it has finished cooking and is still hot. That way it doesn't stick to the cooker (unlike when I am too lazy and serve straight from the cooker and put it in the fridge to keep or tomorrow).

Hope this helps

True rice is supposed to stick together! Before utensils, and up to today, some culture's eat rice with their fingers. Rice that falls apart would be hard to eat this way. (12/03/2005)

You can also use white vinegar. Turns out fluffy and white. Learned this from a cajun cook. But the true trick to fluffy rice is after you bring your rice and water back to a boil turn heat to low, cover and don't remove lid for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed. NEVER stir rice while cooking if you want it fluffy. (12/10/2005)
