Low Carb White Rice Without a Rice Cooker

Thursday, March 26, 2009

Don't have a rice cooker? No problem! Here's a simple way to cook tasty and healthy rice.
== == Steps ==

1. Put one cup of white basmati rice in a medium-size sauce pan.
2. Add 4 cups of water to the rice and put the pan on the stove.
3. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer.
4. Add additional water to keep the water-level above the rice.
5. Test the rice periodically till desired tenderness is reached and the grains have become longer.
6. Place a medium size colander in the kitchen sink and drain the rice by pouring the contents of the pan into the colander.
7. Shake the colander to dislodge remaining water and place in a serving dish.
8. Your rice is ready for eating! ==

Remember to turn the stove off before you remove the rice for draining.
The ratio of rice to water is 1:4.
A dab of butter can be dissolved in the rice just prior to draining. This enhances the flavor of the rice.
Please do not waste the excess liquid by draining in the sink. You can make a healthy drink which is considered to be natural coolant. Add a little powdered cardamom for flavor and a pinch of salt to taste and mix well and serve hot or cold.

Don't ruin your meal by forgetting about the rice while it is cooking. A low water level can cause it to dry out.
