  • 1 cup long grain white rice Jasmine or regular long grain
  • 1.5 cups water room temperature


  • Put the rice and water into a large shallow stainless steel pan. 
  • Put the pan in your steam oven and set to 100°C/212°F on the steam-only setting (100% humidity). Set your timer for 20 minutes. If you have a full sized steam oven rather than a compact one, set 22-23 minutes to allow a little extra time for the larger oven cavity to heat up.
  • When the timer goes off, remove the pan from the oven, fluff the rice with a fork and leave it to sit for 2 minutes before serving.
