How to fix overcooked rice: Cooking an ideal pot of rice isn’t difficult, but sometimes, it doesn’t end up as perfect as you’d like. So here are ways to repair rice that has clothed but perfectly:

Problem: The rice remains very chewy or hard within the middle after the allotted time.
Solution: Add only enough water to make a touch steam, 1/4 cup or less. Put the lid on and cook the rice on very low heat for an additional 5 minutes.

Problem: The rice is cooked but too wet.
Solution: Uncover the pot and cook over low heat to evaporate the water. Or gently turn the rice out onto a baking sheet and dry it during a low oven.

Problem: The grains are split and therefore the rice is mushy.
Solution: Use the rice for rice pudding and begin over if you’ve got the time.
