Cook rice in a double boiler for 40 minutes .
How to cook rice in a steamer
All you need is a glass of rice, a glass of water.
1. Sort the rice, if necessary, rinse until clear water in a sieve for 1 minute, let the water drain.
2. Put the rice in a bowl, pour boiling water over it with a margin of 1 centimeter.
3. Drain the water, put the rice in the steamer bowl designed for rice. If a rice bowl is not available, a small ceramic or other fireproof mold can be used. It is very important here that the filling of the rice container should not exceed half the volume of this container, since the rice will increase during cooking.
4. With a spoon, level the rice in the container so that the steam evenly boils the rice, pour in water in a 1: 1 ratio – 1 glass of water per 1 cup of rice.
5. Make sure that the water container of the steamer is full.
6. Turn on the steamer.
7. Cook rice in a double boiler for 40 minutes (1 cup) – 50 minutes (2 cups).
8. Without stirring the rice, sprinkle it with a spoonful of sunflower or butter, insist under the lid for 5 minutes.
Tip: after cooking, rice can be flavored with butter, sprinkled with cheese and herbs. Alternatively, cook in a double boiler along with green peas, then you get a complete healthy dish.
Proportions of rice and water
In a bowl of rice, add 1 cup of water to 1 cup of rice. In the water tank that will steam the rice, you can pour water to the top, at least 1 cup. During cooking, make sure that the water in the tank does not run out – and add boiling water as necessary.
Types of rice and time in the steamer
Cook rice in a double boiler for a little longer, since the heating is less intense than on the stove. But thanks to the even heating, the rice turns out to be more crumbly, and gentle saturation with moisture makes steam rice the most useful of all.
Long grain – 25 minutes, leave for 5 minutes.
Medium grain – 25 minutes, leave for 5 minutes.
Round-grain – 30 minutes, leave for 10 minutes without opening the double boiler.
Types of steamers and cooking time
Steamers of all manufacturers, be it Brown, Philips or Tefal, work on the same principle: water boils in a special container, and the steam goes up and processes the rice. The rice cooking time can be affected by the level of the steamer (1, 2 or 3) and the amount of rice. Time for steamers from different manufacturers:
In the Tefal steamer , the cooking time from the moment the water in the tank boils is 1 cup 45 minutes, 2 cups 55 minutes. Most tefal models have modes – select “Groats”. Pour no more than 2/3 of the level into the rice bowl.
Brown FS 20, FS 3000, FS 5100: in the rice container from the kit with maximum water inlet, in the lower basket 40-50 minutes, in the upper level 50-60 minutes. There are modes in the FS 20 steamer, choose “cereals”.
Phillips : Chef Program, in the included rice bowl on the bottom 35-40 minutes, on the average 40-45, in the top basket 50-60 minutes.
In a steamer, cook rice for 25 minutes after boiling water.
