Why is she inserting her finger on the rice?
>>
>>122824044
To measure how much water she need for the rice.
This is basic common sense.
Lets all laugh at OP.

Oh my god this looks so much easier than trying to measure it.

To the uninformed, it's not just a matter of measuring rice and measuring water, you need to wash the rice, and there will be moisture remaining on the rice after washing no matter how you do it.

Your rice cooker will often have lines to help you judge the ratio, but if you're thinking of cooking in a regular pot it's much more difficult.

You do realize that you're basically boiling the rice (for lack of a better word), and that most bacteria will die due to the heat?

If you're that paranoid, you could also wash your hands before washing and preparing the rice.

Except Ebola. Ebola came from most deserted areas of Africa and it's resistance to all kinds of environment is what alerted the international health community.

>>122825049
Bacteria will die if you boil the water, but some viruses (such as what you could have on your hands when you don't wash them) don't die without much higher temperatures.

Except Ebola can only be transmitted via bodily fluids, so unless you're infected and start sneezing in the shit, you're not going to get it, which is why you don't fucking let sick people cook.

Also, they're in Japan, not Niggerland, so it's really unlikely that they'll get infected unless one of their siblings went to Niggerland where Ebola is being spread, came back, somehow got past screening, and started infecting them too.

>>
>>122825538
Use two cups of different size. Fill the bigger cup from the smaller cup, then do it again so that the bigger cup is full and the smaller cup contains a rest. If you do this a few times you can easily create amounts like a fraction of a cup, without having to guess.

Now you have the right ratio for rice.

I've read all the posts. Now here's the question: __how do I measure rice and water?__ So much people here are bragging that they've mastered that skill. And still it isn't clear.

1. I wash 1 cup of rice and add 2 cups of water (That's how I do), then put in Panasonic cooker.
2. Pour a water until it shifts rice level at a certain heigh. It's a constant (Yf). Doesn't matter how much rice you've loaded. But that's not 1:2 at all! Someone is making a terrible mistake.

Why had she said "al dente"? So - one phalanx - "Al dente", 1.5 - "Normie", 2 - "Puffy"?

>>122826937
Use a cup (usually a drinking cup). In my family, we never bothered with measuring how much water to put in considering we always washed the rice, drained it, and then poured and measured the water using that finger method (half of the tip of the index finger, rather than the whole tip).

Also, Japanese rice cookers are really damn reliable. Shit never breaks and the rice always comes out soft and nice.
>>
>>122826637
Well duh, cooking rice without putting nothing on it or cooking it plain will result in plain taste.
I suggest cooking chicken thighs in water, and if you have clean chicken wings, you should also add them (as long as they don't have hairs - you can burn those on a stove).
Cook for about 15-20 minutes, and then filter the broth from litter.
Take some rice and wash it so won't be starchy and sticky, and for every cup of rice add 2 cups of the broth.
You let it boil until all the water is absorbed by the rice and then you should make a 'hole' in the rice with a spoon or whatever.
Let it cook for about 15 minutes with a closed lid and you're done.

Wouldn't the amount of water needed depends on the type of the rice being cooked? Chinese rice sips more water than Japanese rice, Philipine rice has more starch content than most of the rice. You put a teaspoon of water every 5 minutes when cooking a Thai rice because the rice is a mix of different breeds. Cooking different kinds of rice has their own technique.

How to cook rice without being retarded:
1-put rice in pot, add vinegar, wash and let it settle for an hour with lid on (less depending on how hot your kitchen is, more if kitchen is cold)
2-pour water out, add salt, oil and fresh water. put lid on, bring to boil then lower heat and leave on for 15-20 mins
3-take off heat and let it rest for 30 mins without removing lid.

Pretty much, I'm Cambodian and in general the rule of thumb is that the amount of water should be an inch or so above the rice; we usually just use a finger to measure since it's convenient. Also make sure to rinse the rice at least three times, because the shit used to preserve it isn't exactly healthy.

If you want something like porridge you add more water; otherwise it is better to be a bit conservative with the amount of water used. If you're really picky about how you want your rice cook it on the stove, otherwise a conventional rice cooker should do the job fine.

What happens when you cook rice without water?

>>122827875
not everyone has a rice cooker. and even if you do, you should be washing and resting the rice before anyway.

>>122827885
But why would it taste starchy if you wash it?
Also see >>122827072 , if you add chicken broth it will taste much better.

>>122827818
Your position have been exposed.

White, long grain - 1 3/4 cups of water per 1 cup of rice (420 mL water per 240 mL rice)
White, medium grain - 1 1/2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice (360 mL water per 240 mL rice)
White, short grain - 1 1/4 cups of water per 1 cup of rice (300 mL water per 240 mL rice)
Brown, long grain - 2 1/4 cups of water per 1 cup of rice (520 mL water per 240 mL rice)
Sold as "parboiled" (not half-cooked at home) - 2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice
>>
Here's how I do it, taught by my Japanese grandmother:
Measure the rice you want to cook
Rinse it a few times getting as much starchy water out as possible
Use the measuring lines in the rice cooker
Depending on use of rice add powdered rice vinegar and fan rice to cool it down
Now it's ready for sushi or inarizushi!
>>
What the fuck is the vinegar for? Can't you just add it to the cooking water?
>>
>>122827937
>you should be washing and resting the rice before anyway.
Literally why? It's being fucking boiled in water. It's not going to kill me if I don't wash it. And before you say something stupid like "it tastes better" it's fucking rice, not some gourmet high-class seafood.

To make the cooking faster, saving gas, energy, and time.

>>122828019
It's just because there's extra starch in the rice that doesn't need to be there.

Wash rice with water twice. 1.5:1 water to rice ratio, you can add more water if you want your rice to be more sticky. Put in rice cooker and you're done. Adding flavor to rice is stupid unless the rest of your meal has no flavor, or is mostly rice.

That being said, frying white rice with canned tuna in tomato sauce with a bit of soy sauce, black pepper, chopped onions and garlic, mixed with egg is really damn good, especially if it's the tuna comes with "spicy" tomato sauce. The trick though is making sure the tuna doesn't break apart while you're cooking it and making sure the egg and sauces get soaked up by the rice.

How to rice(raisu):
----------------
1) Pour a bunch of fucking rice into a pot with cold, filtered water. Scrub it with your hand, mashing the grains to the bottom. Rinse and repeat until the cold water pours out mostly clear (can take 10+ times)
2) Pour the rice in the pot, then fill it with enough water to come up to your second knuckle. It doesn't matter how much fucking rice you use either; second knuckle.
3) Simmer it, covered, until the liquid is mostly gone.

Use a pressure cooker or rice cooker, the rice you want (some kind of parboiled carolina or whatever is fine), and the right amount of water and salt or other spicing, if you like that.

Yep, it's fucking easy if you can measure water and time.

Pressure cookers / rice cookers that act like pressure cookers will distribute the water and heat quite evenly and predictably anyhow, and the heat -unlike the water- isn't even really much of a problem to start with.
