15 The Secret to Fluffy Rice

Ever wondered how to make light, fluffy rice?
Now you can.  All you need to do is rinse your rice in cool water.

Strain your rice through a colander or sieve.
Do this 2-3 times or until the water is fairly clear.  I watched several Japanese students do this and always thought, "But the rice isn't dirty..."
The rice ISN'T dirty.  It's full of starch.  Rinsing it removes the starch that causes the rice to be sticky.

Cool, huh?
