- Keep the stock simmering in a separate saucepan so it’s piping hot when added to the rice to ensure the rice cooks consistently. Add a little at a time - if you run out, just add some boiling water.
- Stirring regularly with a wooden spoon ensures the rice releases its starch to ensure a creamy texture.
- Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Then defrost in the fridge and reheat until piping hot throughout. Discard any leftovers and do not reheat/refreeze.
