In order for the dish to turn out really delicious, you need to properly cook rice. But first, rinse the cereal well several times under running cold water. Then transfer the rice to the pan, pour a couple of glasses of purified water, add a little salt and put everything on the stove. Close the pan with a lid and bring its contents to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook 20 minutes.
