Fluffy rice

Thermomix Rice

There are so many ways to make Thermomix rice but as a rice-o-phile, this is my tried and tested way.

We’re all creatures of habit and even before having a Thermomix, I had a rice cooker. This rice cooker was my friend and so loved that I hand-carried it back from Japan in 2001. I paid a lot of money for it and there was no way I was leaving it behind. So fast forward to 2009, when I first bought my Thermomix, why would I change the way that I’d be making rice for over a decade. There was no need to. Yes, I became an Advisor soon after my initial purchase so I would advocate that the Thermomix has many functions, including cooking rice whilst secretly behind closed doors, continuing to make rice in my beloved rice cooker.

And then my au pair broke it. Accidentally, of course, but I was livid. I was filled with anger and emotion. Sadness and despair. Those who know me, know I’m not a violent person, so dear Martyna’s life was never at risk but I was mad. And moody.

There’s a reason you marry the person you end up marrying and for me, Rob is the one, the only one, who knows how to handle me. My darling husband reminded me that my Thermomix could make perfect fluffy rice and I should try it. Well, dear hubby, you were right. Habits are hard to break, but when you find a new one, it might stick forever.

I bring you the easiest and most loved recipe in my Indian household – Thermomix rice. Perfect Thermomix rice. The fluffiest white rice which is a staple side dish for many Asian meals. Here’s how to get it right every time
