Foods N' Recipes / Cooking rice the normal way...
We bought a rice cooker after the old one was retired. Not long after, the new one opted for a very, very early retirement. We couldn't, for the life of us, decide what was the course, it wasn't like we were overworking it???
Anyway, I didn't think we should run out and buy one since rice can be cooked on the stove. I used the rice cooker pot.
This post contains the steps to cooking rice for Hubby, who likes to have things all written down, filed and cataloged :P
Currently we are using Thai Scented Long Grain rice which we buy from Chong Lei in a 40 lb sack. It looks and taste really good, believe me (nope, not being paid to advertise by the producers).
1. First, I usually rinse out the rice and let it drain while the water boils in the rice pot. I used to use the stainless steel sauce pan but I opted to use the rice pot then I could use the sauce pan for something else, like soup.
2. Bring the water to a boil and add in the rice. Put it on low to medium heat (for our stove, '5') for 10 mins.
3. After that, I usually like to fluff the rice with a chopstick and leave it on low for another 10 mins.
4. We are done!
