Two methods on how to cook | make sushi rice #4

July 11th, 2007 by sushi

First method. Bring rice and water to the boil on medium high heat with the lid OFF; be careful not to let rice to boil over. Stir with rice paddle, and turn down heat very low. Place lid on pan. Cook the rice for 15 to 20 minutes.

Second method. Bring rice and water to the boil on medium heat with the lid ON. As soon as you see that the rice begins to boil, lower the heat and cook the rice for 15 to 20 minutes.

So how do you know when the rice is ready? Since it is your first or may be fifth time, don’t worry to take off the lid and taste the rice. Many website say that it is important to keep the lid closed all the way to the end, until 15-20 minutes pass, but how will you know if it is enough or not. So take off the lid and taste the rice. The rice should not be dry inside, it should be soft. Only this way you will know how much more you do need to cook the rice. If the rice is not ready yet, make sure that you put back the lid ON. If the rice is ready, turn off the heat and let the rice stay in the saucepan for about 10 to 20 minutes. I prefer to keep it for 10 minutes in the saucepan with lid on and then open the lid and let it stay for three or four minutes without it. This strategy doesn’t damage the rice in any way and the rice doesn’t lose anything whatever others may say. Read the rest of this entry »

How to cook rice in a Sausepan – Hint #3

July 11th, 2007 by sushi

So you have found/bought the rice, what’s next? Next is cooking. Well almost, but not yet. First of all you will have to decide how much rice you are going to cook, since it is directly related to how much water you will need. The basic idea of rice to water correlation is 1:1. I usually use a bit more water when I cook in the saucepan. However, when I cook rice in electric sushi cooker, I use the guide that comes with it; it shows exactly how much water is needed for particular amount of rice. I find it easer to cook in electric rice cooker and since it is so easy, I will explain how to cook the rice in a simple saucepan. But the main idea for both is to get the rice to the finished state.

I advise you to use Teflon covered saucepans. Well, there are also aluminum ones (old ones) and stainless steel saucepans. Forget about aluminum ones. Stainless still saucepans are not good because the rice will burn to them and you will have a hard time removing burned rice from the surface.

So the best choice is Teflon Saucepan, because when you going to burn the rice and I’m 100% sure you’re going to burn it, it will be easer to remove the rice.
