1. You can pre-soak your rice for 15 minutes and rinse out the starch in the rice until water is clear. leave on a sieve to dry before frying the rice.
2. I use a good quality basmati rice and so I will be honest I dont always wash my rice and I still get fluffy rice.
3. For the cubes you can use chicken,beef,veg etc or fresh stock.
