comment Why is my Spanish rice chewy?
Thanks Heather :-) I thought you might like this place. And I need help. And here all I get is mocked for buying cheap ingredients ;-) Point taken though - I'll try a different brand of rice next time too. But as you'll see above, I think my problem was stirring as well as not enough liquid. Next time will be great I'm sure :-)

If I add the water in batches, do I still not stir in between batches of liquid? I just pour it in and let it settle where it will?

The rice did have a slight crunch in the middle too, so I think I may have two problems - stirring and not enough water.

Great advice - thanks! I think stirring too much might have been my problem this time. I didn't realise I wasn't supposed to, and I was worried about it sticking to the bottom of the pan. I'll try it with your suggestions next time. Thanks!

I did brown the rice in the pan before adding the liquid, but I didn't wash it off before cooking. I'll try some variations next time.
