Ash - Viva!'s talented database and fundraising person - is also a bit of a whizz in the kitchen! Being a keen athlete, he is always thinking about food too...
He's very particular about rice and swears on his auntie's recipe for the perfect method! The secret is to steam-cook it in a pan with a well-fitting lid.
White basmati - 11-20 minutes
Brown longraing rice or brown basmati - 25-35 minutes
Use ready-cooked rice (brown or rice) in a pouch plus a vegetable stir-fry pack!
