Parboiled rice is a favorite among many cultures around the world. Its benefits compared to the standard white rice is plenty. While white rice is loaded with calories low nutritional content, parboiled rice offers high fiber, essential vitamins, minerals, and easy-to-digest carbs. With all this said, you may wonder, “Is it difficult to cook parboiled rice?” or “How different is the cooking method compared to white rice?” The answer to those questions is simple. Parboiled rice is quite easy to prepare and the cooking method does not vary by much!
Here’s a cool tip to save you some time and incredibly enhance flavor. Wash 1 part parboiled rice and soak them in water for 30 minutes before cooking. This will save you cooking time and will bring out a greater flavor of the rice. This step is purely optional but will reduce your cooking time by almost 20 percent.
Next, in a pot bring 2 parts water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Once the water is boiling, drain the soaking parboiled rice and add it to the pot. Be careful not to splash the boiling water. Swirl the rice with a fork and cover the lid. Let the rice cook for at least 35-40 minutes. Remember to swirl the rice with a fork and not stir with a spoon. Stirring the rice with a spoon will make them stick together, and you don’t want that.
You’re almost done! After 40 minutes, remove the lid and let the rice cool for 5 minutes. Then swirl the fluffy rice with a fork and serve away! See how simple that was? But here’s an interesting factor that will determine the flavor and quality of your dish, it’s the quality of your rice.
