There is a very specific way of cooking rice for Chinese recipes, so that you get well-cooked yet separate grains, which can then be added to recipes like Schezuan Fried Rice , 5 Spice Mushroom Rice , and even certain Stir-fries and Soups .


You will be able to draw a parallel between the way rice and noodles are cooked in Chinese cuisine, as both require cooking with oil and refreshing with cold water to avoid mushiness.

Method for cooking Chinese Rice

  1. To cook the chinese long-grained rice, wash 1 cup of long-grained rice thoroughly under running water until you get clear water. The removal of starch from rice helps in getting separate grains after cooking.
  2. Transfer in a deep bowl and soak in enough water for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain with the help of a strainer and keep aside.
  4. Boil 4 cups of water in a deep non-stick pan.
  5. Add salt.
  6. Furthermore, add 1 tbsp of oil and mix well.
  7. Add the rice to the boiling water and mix well.
  8. Cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes or till the rice is 85% cooked, while stirring occasionally.
  9. Strain it using a strainer and let the water drain out. This will give you around 3 cups after cooking. Do not overcook the rice or else they will turn soft and mushy.
  10. Pour some cold water on the rice to stop further cooking. Let all the water from the rice drain out ensuring that the rice does not contain any moisture.
  11. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil. This helps in preventing the rice from sticking together.
  12. Toss the rice in it. Ensure each grain is coated well with oil.
  13. Spread the cooked Chinese Rice on a flat surface or a big plate and allow it to cool for 1 to 2 hours.
  14. Cover the Chinese Rice with another plate so, the grains don’t dry out. Use as required.
