No wonder so many people purchase pre-cooked rice today. There is nothing worst that biting into rice and getting those dreaded cruchy pieces, or to find out your rice is mushy
or even just plain under cooked.
My hope is that I can explain how to make the perfect pot of rice white or brown, EVERY TIME!
First thing you need to know is how much water rice needs to cook.
Whether it is white or brown, rice needs a 1:2 ratio. Meaning if you put in one cup of rice, you need 2 cups of water. Making 2 cups of rice, then you need 4 cups of water…. Well you get the idea.
So fill up your pot with your water and add your rice.
Turn your burner on high....
You don't want to go very far from your pot.
The point is to get your water to heat up quickly and bring it to a boil.
Once it's at your boil, not so sure my picture turned out, but you get the point.
Turn your burner all the way low....
Set your timer to 20 minutes for white rice and
40 minutes for brown rice.
DO NOT remove the lid or stir at any point. Just let it sit and do it's thing.
When the timer goes off turn the burner completely off.
You can stir at this point if you wish to check on it...
re-cover and let sit for 5-10 minutes for white rice,
and 10-20 minutes for brown rice.
|The perfect pot of brown rice.... Mmmmmm|
NOTE: You want your rice to absorb all the bits of steam to give you nice fluffy rice. If you want sticky rice, you may serve after just the first couple of minutes of sitting.
That's it, it really is that easy!
