Yes, I’m talking about cooking rice. Though this is a grain we’ve been cooking for thousands of years, how we cook it hasn’t changed much.
There are two ways to do it. The first is to steam the rice, where you would keep the rice with water in a pot with the lid on. When the water evaporates your rice is ready. The boiling method is done simply by rinsing the rice and bringing it to a boil. The rice will be very soft when ready, and then strain and serve.
Mrunal will share how she cooks the rice for her recipes included in the Cook With Me iOS app.
“I use the absorption method. To do this rinse the rice with water to wash out excess starch. Next add water, which measures twice the amount of rice. Put the water and rice in a pot on the stove on medium or low heat. Make sure to put the lid on. Once the rice has absorbed all the water, it is cooked. Let the rice sit for five minutes. After that, you can use it for whatever recipe you want.”
Thank you Mrunal. And to our Cook With Me customers, happy cooking!
