If you find making a perfect pot of white rice a challenge, you’re not alone. Fluffy and tender rice is something that can elude even seasoned chefs. Here’s a tip: Be sure not to skip the resting step at the end: as the rice sits off the heat, the moisture in the rice redistributes itself for a more uniform texture throughout the pot.
