Choose your quantity of rice and have double the volume of boiling water ready. Use a pot with a lid, place on a high heat and just cover the bottom with olive oil and allow to get hot.
Add the rice and stir quickly making sure all the grains are covered, add the boiling water immediately and stir, it will spit for a second, put the lid on, turn the heat down to the absolute minimum, set your timer/phone for 16 minutes, perfect rice !!
For curry add 2/3 cloves and a teaspoon of turmeric to the water and stir before you put the lid on.
