    Wash the rice

    There are different ways of washing the rice. One is by putting it in a bowl filled with water and then stirring it for a couple of minutes before changing the water again. The better thing would be to put all of the rice in a strainer and open a tap of cold water over it. The rice will be properly washed by itself and you will not be required to do anything extra for it.
