Chances are good to get a soften instead of loose rice. Do not be upset, it is much more correct to learn a few tricks, the use of which will guarantee the preparation of excellent side dishes.
There are several ways to make rice crumbly. Which of them to use, each hostess chooses independently.
If you pour rice with cold water at least an hour before cooking, it will have time to swell a little. An added bonus will be a smaller amount of starch in the finished dish. Ideally, the water should cover the rice with at least 2 fingers.
In the tank, where it is planned to cook the rice, we melt 50-70 g of butter, add hot water at the rate of 1: 1 to the swollen rice and salt, bring it to the boil and add rice, having got rid of excess liquid.
Cover the rice with a lid, reduce the heat and leave it alone for 15 minutes. Roughly this time is just enough for the water to evaporate. This is a sign that rice is ready. Now he needs to stand under the lid for half an hour.
Fry and enjoy the crispness
We wash rice in a large amount of water, then we recline on a colander and let it drain well.
In a deep frying pan or pan pour 2 tablespoons. vegetable oil. As soon as the pan is warm enough, we send rice to it and fry, stirring constantly, for 5-10 minutes. During this time, the rice should turn white.
Pour water in a 1: 2 ratio to the initial volume of rice in a saucepan, bring it to a boil, add salt and add rice to sleep. Then simply cover the rice with a lid and cook over low heat until the water evaporates.
The more water the better
Pour into the pan at least 2 liters of water, bring to a boil, salt and pour the previously washed rice. In parallel, we put on the kettle kettle.
When the rice is almost ready, send it to a colander, then wash it with pre-prepared boiling water and let it drain for 5 minutes.
Pour the rice into the pan, add a little butter or vegetable oil, mix thoroughly and bring to readiness over low heat under the lid for 5-7 minutes. Then turn off the fire and give the rice a little brew.
