How to cook rice tastier is a question of many homemakers. However,it is not for sticky rice. Therefore,it is for rice in which every grain is separate and evenly cooked – tender without being mushy. The technique is what is essential. At the end of the recipe are proportions of rice and water for serving varying numbers of people. The explanation is more extended than actually doing it. However,once you’ve done it a few times, you won’t ever have to use a recipe again.
Preparing Details Of How To Cook Rice
I start with a small to the medium saucepan. Moreover, I add a bit of butter or oil and saltless for a small amount of rice and more for a significant amount, but I don’t measure it. Add the rice and cook over medium heat until the grains start to become translucent – about 2-3 minutes. Bring to a gentle boil (don’t let it boil hard for very long). Reduce heat to low and cook for 12 minutes without lifting the lid. Therefore,don’t even peek and never stir the rice once it starts boiling. After about 10 minutes – no sooner than that, remove the pan from the heat. Insert a fork down to the bottom of the pot and scrape it towards you about 1/2 inch, so that you can see the bottom of the pan. If the water absorbs, replace the lid and let it sit off the heat for five minutes or so. If it’s still quite wet, return it to low heat for another 2-3 minutes. Again – Don’tT stir. When the bottom of the pan is dry, remove it from the heat and let stand for five minutes – don’t stir it yet!
What Happens If The Rice Sticks To The Bottom?
Don’t worry if the rice has stuck a bit to the bottom of the pan. As long as it isn’t browned or burned – it can even be a little golden – it’ll be fine. Let the rice sit off the heat for 5-10 minutes or so, and it will completely release from the pan. If the rice is on the stove, but off a burner, while other things are cooking, it will stay nice and warm – it doesn’t have to be hot. You can cook enough rice for 1 or 20 with this method. For example, measure 1/2 cup of rice into the pot with butter and salt. Use the same half-cup measure and fill with water. However, you can see the rice has become translucent. Now, add the one-half cup and then 1/2 of the half measuring cup for the remaining water.
Use a little bit more for a small amount of rice. Moreover, When you get to 1 cup of rice or more, use one whole measuring cup of water and one half of it. You should never go by the package directions that say two cups of water for each cup of rice.
