Cooking rice

#1 Post by probes » Fri Apr 29, 2016 8:10 am

When cooking rice at home, a pot with a tight lid is ideal as it will reduce the amount of evaporation.
It’s also important to know the humidity in your environment, lid tightness, and the diameter of the pot you’ll be using.
These factors all affect the outcome of your rice, so getting to know how they influence evaporation will help you create the perfect ratio for the specific conditions of your kitchen.

Cover the rice well with water, don't stir too often, don't let too much water evaporate (use a lid) and don't boil it to buggery (bring to boil then down to a vigorous simmer) for about 11 mins - perfect.

Did you misspell the first word by any chance?

Buy yourself an electric rice cooker. :-bd
