What kind of white rice do you use and how do you cook it: stove, rice cooker, microwave, anything else?
I grew up in Bénin and in my house we cook white rice on the stove. When I moved to my first apartment in the US I bought a rice cooker and I used it for a good 6 years. Suddenly It seemed like cooking rice became easier that way. Haha.
Then I moved to Chicago. Here in my apartment I have a very small kitchen, so I had to choose between getting a deep fryer and a rice cooker. I went with the deep fryer which means I had to start cooking rice on the stove. When I tell you, it is the best decision I made – I’m not even lying: RICE ON THE STOVE TASTES BETTER y’all.
While back home we wait for the water to boil before adding the washed rice, here I combine all my ingredients into a pot at once like you would in a rice cooker. It’s the Easiest – Most Delicious – Best White Rice – PERIODT.
Rice is probably the most consumed food in the world, especially in Africa. There are so many different types of rice and today my favorite one is Basmati – it used to be Jasmine. I love it because (1) it is not sticky and (2) you just can’t not nail cooking it. Would love to know what your favorite rice to cook is, but I hope you give this recipe a try as well.
