Tasty Facts

The secret of Korean rice is in the original heat treatment. At first, rice is cooked very intensively, while bringing the rice to full readiness takes place due to the accumulated temperature. Thick-walled pots or cauldrons are best kept warm, and if they are not there, just wrap the rice with a blanket or keep warm.

Since the main dishes of Korean cuisine are usually very spicy and fragrant, rice serves as a rather fresh and nutritious addition to them at the same time. Spices and salt are not added at all when cooking Korean rice, so it will perfectly dilute the spiciness of Korean chicken, pickled bell peppers or meat hee.

Rice is so common in Korea that it is simply called porridge. In Korean families, rice cooked in this way is served throughout the day as bread. Still, this is the fifth country in the production of rice, a country that has even surpassed Thailand.
