Use about 1/3 cup (60g) of rice per person.

Wash the rice to in a large bowl filled with cold water. Swirl the rice with your hand, and the water will become cloudy with starch. Slowly pour the water away, holding back the grains with your free hand or with a strainer. Repeat this three or four times until the water is reasonably clear.

Before you cook your rice, try letting it soak for 15 to 30 minutes. This process allows the grain to relax and be more digestible.

Sauteing the rice in ghee or oil before you cook or steam the rice is another way to keep the grains from becoming soggy. Saute until the grains become translucent.

When cooking rice the water ratio is about 1 ¾ parts water for one part of rice. If you have soaked the rice beforehand, use a little less water.

In most recipes, trapped steam helps cook the rice, so keep the pan covered tightly. When you steam rice, use the lowest heat, without lifting the lid or stirring.

There are two ways to do this: one is the pasta way - you boil a lot of water, a pinch of salt and a few drops of oil, add the rice and when tender pour out the excess water. Put the strained rice in a pot sprinkle some oil on the rice. Add some water and steam the rice on low until the rice is fully cooked.

The second way of cooking rice is the absorbed method, in which you put exactly the amount of water required to give the rice a perfect consistency. It is difficult to be accurate because the exact amount of water depends on the variety of rice used, its age and so on. Basmati rice requires about 1 ¾ parts water for one part of rice and jasmine rice requires about 2 parts water for one part of rice. Always use a heavy pot with a tight lid – remember for each cup of rice there is about 2 more cups of water, so choose your pot accordingly.

Converted Rice (a.k.a. parboiled)

Description: The process of parboiling is from south India where steam was passed through the grains with the husks on. The nutrients are embedded into the grain by this procedure. The rice is polished after this teaming is done. This results in more nutritious rice than white rice and more digestible rice than brown rice. . For this reason other Asian countries that depended on rice as their staple sometimes had survey, but the Indians avoided it due to the process of parboiling. Also, This procedure gelatinizes the starch in the grain, and ensures a firmer, more separate grain. Consumers and chefs who desire extra fluffy and separate cooked rice favor parboiled rice.
