Enough Rice for the whole family.
« on: February 19, 2012, 08:13:21 am »
Every time I cook this I mean to post the recipe.  As you can see from the photo it makes more than cooking it in the basket.
Below is a description of what I do ,  but you could tip it into the Thermoserver to absorb the water.

250g rice
480g of boiling water
salt

Tip rice into TMX bowl
Add boiling water
Set dial to 5 mins/ Varoma/ speed 1.
Turn off and place tea towel over top to prevent evaporation.
or tip into Thermoserver and set aside for 25 mins.

If you wish you could cook onion/garlic in bowl first and then follow directions.

For brown rice

250g brown short grain rice,                                                                                                                                                     480g of boiling water.

Set dial 10 mins/ Varoma/ speed 1
Tip into Thermosaver,  ( I warmed it first with boiling water)
Stand with lid on for 35 mins.

this recipe makes 730g or nearly 6 cups of cooked rice


members' comments

Uni - I made 2 batches - 1 just plain and the other one I added

frozen corn, peas and beans a MC full of each
a handful of dry shiitake mushrooms
1 tbs of garlic and 50 g of onion + 2 bay leaves

I love it when easy gets easier. You are a legend Chookie.

mcmich - This was so easy. I don't think I will cook rice any other way now. Made it last night and turned it into fried rice.

KerrynN - This worked really well although I did get some rice stick to the bottom of the bowl in that 5 minutes.

Uni - makes great sushi rice too.

MJ has posted another alternative on page 4 of this thread - Spiced Basmati Rice

Not only that Chookie, it also frees up the TMX to cook something to accompany the rice.  You've got 25 minutes to make it.

Judy,  as I have 2 bowls,  i usually leave it in the TMX bowl and at the end of 25 mins.,  use a fork to scrape it into another serving bowl.

Chookie, would you say you prefer rice cooked this way or in the steaming basket if it was just for you and DH?

Judy, I always cook it this way,  and freeze any that is left over.  Even my Chinese DIL likes it,  and she is very fussy about her rice.

It also reheats well in the Microwave.

Uni,  you are at it again.  I start with a basic recipe and you run with it.  Always much improved by your imagination. ;D

Thanks Chookie, that's great. I don't have 2 bowls so putting it in the
thermoserver would give me (as JD suggested) 25mins to make the main.
Turning it into savoury rice is brilliant Fundj.
I just looove the forum.
