Real Talk: We rinsing our rice up in here or what?
I struggle with making myself take the 5 minutes to rinse it, you think I'm gonna put shoes on and exercise for a quarter hour just to make rice?
You're the first affirmative answer.
What does rinsing it actually do for you?
Explain it like I'm very dumb (because I am.)
@PostMasterGeneral it gets rid of extra starch— sometimes you want to keep the starch, like for sushi rice or risotto, so I don't rinse those
But for most other types of rice I don't want it too sticky. Basmati especially, the standard is to "polish" the rice until the water runs clear
@PostMasterGeneral I’ve never bothered, maybe one day I’ll break a tooth on a stone and regret everything but it’s not happened so far
@PostMasterGeneral i just put it right on the pan on the highest heat, it does something similar, but not the same
