    When cooking Indian rice are you starting out by toasting the rice in ghee, or a neutral oil? If not then do so. Sautee in ghee until grains are chalky. probably about 4 min on moderate heat. Don't burn it.

Rice cooking


This morning I have encountered a great many questions on rice cookers, so I remembered the time when I had one and why I started cooking rice again.
The rice was beautifully cooked in the cooker, but it took up too much space on my kitchen bench. So I turned to pots and the micro.
Cooking rice in a microwave
  • take 1cup water
  • 2 cups rice
  • a pinch of salt
  • put the water, salt and rice together in a bowl with a lid
  • blend well
  • put the lid on the bowl
  • put the bowl into the micro
  • on the micro, keep full force and set the timer on five minutes
  • start the cooking
  • after five minutes open the micro, open the bowl and stir the rice with a fork.put the lid on again keep the micro going for another 10 minutes.
  • repeat the stirring prosess, until the rice is nice and fluffy andready to serve.
Cooking rice in a pot with a lid.
  • take 1cup water
  • 2cups of rice
  • pinch of salt
  • put the ingridience in a pot, and an oven safe pan
  • in the pot, now with a tight lid. Put on a cooker on highest temperature for five minutes.
  • open the pot, stir the rice with a fork.
  • lower heat and cook for another 15-20 minutes,, stirring occasionally.
  • the rice is cooked when fluffy.
Cooking rice in a pan in the oven

How much water for 3 cups of rice?


Between 4.5 and 6 cups of water. If you like firmer rice use a ratio of 1.5 to 1 water to rice, if you like it softer use about 2 cups of water per cup of rice.

Here's a good tip for cooking fluffy rice without sticking to the pan:

Cooking with fallen rice stuck in heatingpan


No. This can cause a fire. Place the cooker in the freezer to freeze the rice in the bottom. The frozen rice will expand and it will be easier to clean up and breakoff the old rice. Once clean you can cook more rice.

My rice cooker is scorching on the bottom.


You need to make sure you have enough water in there. When the rice is cooking, it is sucking up all that water so it can cook and expand. If you don't put enough water in the rice cooker, the rice will use up all the water and then if there is no water left, it will start burning the bottom of the rice because there is no more water.

Hope that helps :)
