questions and answers about rice

How long does rice take to cook?

It depends on the type of rice. White rice usually takes about 15-20 minutes, while brown rice takes a bit longer, about 30-40 minutes. Most basmati and jasmine rice cook the fastest, about 12 – 15 minutes.

What is the best way to cook rice?

There are different ways to cook rice, depending on your preference. For example, some people like to use a rice cooker, while others prefer to cook their rice in a pot on the stovetop. 

Whichever method you choose, rinse the rice before cooking it to remove any excess starch, dirt and arsenic.

Should I use hot or cold rice for the fried rice recipe?

It does make a difference between hot or cold rice when making fried rice. The rice should always be cold. Fresh hot rice will not fry well and turn into mushy sticky rice.

Is it necessary to add oil or butter when cooking rice?

It depends. If you use a nonstick pot or pan for cooking your rice, you probably don’t need to add any oil. However, if you are using a regular pot or pan, you may want to add a bit of oil or butter to help prevent the rice from sticking. Plus, butter adds flavour.

Does rice have arsenic, and should you be concerned?

When arsenic is in the soil, all plants will absorb some of it. But rice is different. Organically farmed rice may contain fewer pesticides, but all rice soaks up arsenic from the soil. Since arsenic is water soluble, you can wash it off. This is why it is so important to rinse the rice before cooking.

Why do we love fried rice recipes?

We all have our favourite comfort foods. For some of us, it’s a big bowl of steaming rice. For others, it’s a hearty plate of fried rice. But, no matter what your preference is, there’s no denying that fried rice is one of the most popular dishes in the world.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to fried rice recipes. You can add whatever vegetables and proteins you like, making it an excellent dish for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike. 

Fried rice is also quick, easy to make, and naturally gluten-free, which is why we love it so much!

I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about this delicious fried rice dish and can now make it at home easily.
