Nazar,  I think the initial time with the boiling water might need to be increased to 10 mins.  And the standing time to 35 mins.  I will give it a go for you and let you know.

nazar,  it works.   After 35 mins standing in Thermoserver it had a very slight bit of texture.  I would say it was cooked.

So for brown short grain 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.

BINGO.

Thanks for the brown rice conversion, Chookie.  I love brown rice but don't always cook it because it takes just that little bit longer, but this is a brilliant solution.  Looks like it was a long day for you.

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.

Frozzie,  don't sleep well.  Over stimulated after day in Melb.  ;D
Mcm.  Glad you like it.
Marina,  how about this?  Mix some of the brown rice with mock rice and steamed silverbeet.  Stir through some cheese,  stud with cherry toms., and sprinkle with bread crumbs  and cheese.  Might need a bit of onion and garlic. ??( Alyce's onions and Tenina's garlic), Bake.   Sorta Hunza Pie.

Chookie I really think you should write a recipe book with all these wonderful ideas of yours. You are always trying something different and do your own thing rather than use recipe books all the time.  It would be like a CWA recipe book for TMX owners.

Thanks Judy,  my beautiful consultant Anita says so too,  but I have too much fun playing with my TMX.  It is also nice to share with all the nice people on the Forum.
