Rice is one of the most popular garnishes in the world and is consumed almost all over the globe and in different ways. However, to cook perfect white rice, try to avoid making these mistakes.
Rice is one of the most requested and most eaten food companions by almost all cultures in the world.
It is nutritious because it has essential vitamins and minerals, but it is also low in sodium, making it ideal to include in hypertensive diets.
But many times, due to ignorance or carelessness, we make some mistakes that make our rice far from what we are looking for and more like a culinary nightmare.
Mistake # 1: Not adding enough water
If you don't add enough water, the rice will dry out and possibly stick to the bottom of your pan or casserole. It depends on the variety of rice, but almost always what is recommended is 3 parts of water for one part of rice. However, read the instructions on the packaging of your product.
Mistake # 2: Moving rice too much
Every time you stir the rice it releases starch and the starch makes your rice gooey. If you want a loose rice, it is best to stir it once when cooking begins, to integrate all the ingredients well and that the salt or other products that you have used to season, are perfectly mixed, then you should leave it alone. If you stir it a lot, you'll have a risotto rice
Mistake # 3: Cooking on very high heat all the time
Rice must be cooked at all times, that is, the broth must always be boiling. For this reason, it is recommended that you cook them over high heat for the first five minutes and then lower the flame to medium or low temperature. If you want it to be more spongy, cover it, if you don't, it will be a little drier.
