There’s great controversy over how rice is to be cooked; some boil and boil then drain the excess water, while others prefer to add limited water and top the saucepan with a lid so it steams. According to one TikTok creator, we should be using the oven to make perfect, fluffy rice.
Maj, also known as @mywanderinghome said she “makes rice a controversial way but it turns out perfect every time”.
She captioned the video: “This one had insta TRIGGERED. To be totally honest, the reason why I started doing this was because when we moved the house came with an induction cooker and I hardly have any pans that work on the stove so I had to get creative for when I had used up all of my pans that worked.

If you’d prefer to cook rice the traditional way, a chef said the perfect ratio of rice to water is 1:2.
Rinse the rice in a sieve to remove any starch left on the grains, then take a heavy-bottom saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
Tip the washed rice and water into the pan and turn up the heat until the water boils, then turn the heat down and add the lid.
Leave it for 10 minutes, then turn the heat off and for another five minutes the steam inside will complete the cooking process.
