we will start slow with the basics

here is how to cook long-grain brown rice


1 - get rice
2 - get a pot with a cover
3 - get access to some sort of heating element
4 - take some rice
5 - get two-and-a-half times as much water as rice
example - if you use 1 cup of rice - use 2 1/2 cups of water
6 - put water in the pot and bring it to a boil
7 - while the water is heating up - rinse the rice
8 - when the water is boiling - put the rice in
9 - when the rice is in - reduce the heat to as low as you can
10 - stir the rice occasionally - maybe every 10 minutes or so
11 - the rice should be done in about 40 minutes
12 - you can tell it is almost done when there is not much water left
13 - when there is not much water left - you can turn the heat off completely
14 - when you are hungry - eat the rice
15 - wash your damn dishes you lazy bastard - maybe best to wash the pot before you even eat


after cooking for a while you will develop your own techniques

as a side note

different types of rice will take different time to cook

this is generally due to the shape of the rice - thinner rice takes less time
fatter rice takes more time



also
where possible - if you have a choice -
dont fuck with any instant rice or any rice that has been pre-cooked or pre-processed

do it all yourself

you will appreciate the efforts in the long run

thanx... thats a good 1st step!... do you eat your rice alone or can you recommend something with it ? or is it best to take types of food alone to get the best out of it ?

also in the intelligence and digestive system thread i tried to make my questions about it more clear.. and if you have answers i would be more than grateful for any knowledge on the subject of your thread..

If you don't know how to make rice, hit yourself in the head with the pot... fuck cooking with it.

You forgot that you have to add a teaspoon of oil to the rice so it does not permanently stick to the sides of your pot and ruin it. A tiny bit of sea salt helps for flavor too, also depending on your preference, like me I like to let the rice sit in the water while its coming to a boil instead of adding it to boiling water.

I just put two parts water to one part rice

put the top on and the fire low and let it cook

I think brown rice tastes the best.

use a steamer. its better for the rice and the veggies as well. you don't boil away the nutrients. same directions just more healthy.

LHX

water and rice

this is the first step

it tastes good when you are hungry enough

this is also an option

LHX

possible pitfalls - aka the FAQ

the rice is too hard
- add more water and let it cook longer

i used too much water
- it is still edible
- some people prefer it this way and refer to it as 'congee' - sort of like a soup

the rice stuck to the bottom of the pot
- it cooked for too long or perhaps you did not stir it enough
- you can still eat it but it will take a bit longer to clean the pot

its too mushy
- dont be fussy
- keep practicing and make adjustments until you get it to your preference

I think brown rice tastes the best.

me too

i rank basmati 2nd and the best among white rice




another side note - be careful with white rice because some of it is BLEACHED and some is naturally white

dont use the bleached stuff

how so. the food keeps it's constincy. the veggies don't get mushy. the food gets cooked with out the watering down in which you can lose some nutrients. any way i'd rather steam then boil. it's liken to heating not stewing in water.

it should not be rushed as qoted by lhx.
is not the water method faster then the steaming? the immersing in water versus the use of steam in a coivered cobtainer?

i agree with you about vegetables
but
not rice

and keep in mind that the rice is only boiled AT THE BEGINNING

as soon as you pu the rice in
you reduce the heat to as low as you can


when you cook rice IN water
the rice absorbs the water - the same as when it is steamed

with other vegetables - steaming is the best technique by far

i agree with you there

you said wash your dishes...

i don't go anywhere near dish soap...

TeknicelStylez
04-21-2006, 02:14 AM
Hell yea vegetables is 24 times better steamed

Great point about the rice absorbing the water, not vice versa, so if the water did actually absorb the nutrients... it would go right back in.

i'm pretty sure that if you add a bit more water the rice gets a bit sticky. asians are fond of sticky rice.

chicken can be tough to cook with because its relatively low in fat

yea ive been usin regular wesson or any oil like that.

maybe i should be using extra virgin olive or sumthin? but nontheless, the chicken is comin out alrite,, my prob is with the rice the rice is mad sticky...am i adding the chicken to the rice too early..too late?

maybe im not letting it cook long enuff ( 2 get rid of extra moisture in rice?)

Peace,

2 cups rice=4 cups water
1 cup rice =2 cups water...

the secret is frying the ingredients (in a large frying pan) first with olive oil; chicken, garlic(chopped fine), tomatoe(grated) until the chicken is golden on both sides

next add your water cook slowly on the minumum heat(creating a nice broth from the chicken bones) once the water is boiling add your vegetables (green beans, carrots whatever you like) at least 30 minutes after add your rice (the slower you cook the nicer it will taste ultimately.)
