How to cook rice in a Sausepan – Hint #3
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.
