I have been doing good rice all my life since I was 11. I can make rice in the microwave and still get it right. Its not that hard, the ingredient proportions, putting the lid on and making the temperature even are key. Rinsing it is useful for some kind of preparations, I usually don't need it for mine, the rice still tastes good.\nNothing on this is hard at all, and no, I'm not asian either.\nThis video feels like those infomercials were people do stupid things on purpose to sell an unneeded product.

Dear Chef Manisha I feel that your method is quite wrong instead of drying rice just boil rice in hot water when it is done just drain out the water , this method is more perfect reason behind this is that in drying method starch and carbohydrate content is high and since rice is daily intake as main course so person is more exposed to diabetes obesity extra diseases so draining out water reduces the starch and carbohydrates level in your daily intake of food and does old method is quite more genuine in biological terms
In my country, kids in middle school are better than this😂😂

I love how every Asian in the comment section is kinda offended \nI can relate
Basmati takes that ratio. Other types of rice take different ratios of rice:water. Also, some parts of the world throw talc on dried rice to make it \
is it 2:1 or 1:2 Ratio ??\nBut, you guys drive on the wrong side of the road...
Breach Arce
Thats the way the western people cook rice
All the people going on about rice cookers, why the f would anyone want to spend money on a special gadget to cook something that is as easy as pie to cook with just a normal saucepan?? Are you being paid?

Who actually cooks rice in a pot if they consume a large amount of rice? I lived in Japan and China for 10 years teaching English, ALL households there use a rice cooker. NO ONE is China or Japan uses a pot to cook rice. This Indian chef is full of BS.

Lol this is making cooking rice even harder.. Just wash the rice into the banga or caldero then put some water. If the rice is 2 cups of rice then the water should be two cups too. After that put it in the stove. Let it boil then simmer it. Walosh its done.
Hansen Xiao

Different rice different water ratio. Usually its 1 is to 1. When its boiling, turn the heat off then wait till the water is absorbed by the rice then turn on the heat again to the lowest for 5 minutes then its done.
Mango Oreo
Use a rice cooker eastyyyyy
Maryam_ Lovesnails
I'll teach you my way of cooking rice:\n1- get a pot boil water (no measuring but the more the better)\n2- rinse the rice until the water comes out clear from the rice\n3- when the water boils add the rice mix it \n4- keep mixing every few minutes until you feel the rice is not strong (soft)\n5- sift it \n6- put a tiny bit of olive oil or vegetable oil to the pot any kind works them add the rice that you sifted from the water\n7- leave it for about 25-30 minutes on low heat \n8- ready to eat it

In india A 8 years old could cook the rice the right way 😊
I've been making rice like that my entire life. That blonde lady is a noob for using a strainer to cook rice.
Rajeev Ratnalikar
Manisha ji, entire south india who eat rice after boiling and draining it... North indian rice, only biryani rice can be cooked in rince way , no varities of indian rice can be cooked the way you are teaching ..... What that girl is missing is the time of cooking in boiling water, a pinch of baking soda can correct her cooking.
Rolando Chan
Asians : say no more!
Russ Marvin X. magbatHon
Wtf the blonde lady dont know the basic things in life! I bet someone is cooking for her since birth!
I add salt and a bit of sunflower oil to make it taste better \nY’all eat some bland rice if you don’t at least put salt in it
AWKWARD MOMENT when the Indian lady was wrong and the presenter was right. Rice didn't come from India, in fact came from China and they used to boil it into a porridge texture this dates to 8000 BC. So everyone thinks this miss know it all Indian women is right, she is totally wrong. And for all the people giving this young presenter shit, and acting like morons you are all wrong to.

Jokes on you, never made rice.
Are people really out here not rinsing their rice???? Guys come on now thats basic stuff.......

Lol I use the finger measuring method. Always turns out fine. But I'll definitely try the double water ratio to see if that's any better :)
Toni S
I am from Hawaii and have been cooking rice since I was a child. We use both ways to measure. Cups or the \
I still don't get why people still using a strainer to wash the rice? *Use a bowl to wash the rice thoroughly (rinse and wash for 2-3 times) till you see almost no cloudy water**. Then fill with a new water with 1:2 ratio (rice:water). ***Cook it either using a stove with lid on or rice cooker, it all will be done in half an hour.\n\nEDIT:\n*You can do it directly using the same cooking pot or rice cooker bowl. It's an easier way if you want to be quick. If you're using rice cooker bowl, don't forget to wipe water remains from the bottom part before you cook.\n**The nutrients of the rice is not affected, it will remove any dust and starchy residue from the rice. Believe me after it cooked, it will last up to 2 days (without refrigerated/freezer) and more if you refrigerated it (for leftover).\n***Depending on what type of rice, the amount of rice and what tool you're using to cook the rice. Is it stove, rice cooker? Time of cooking may differ and it will be done less than half an hour. If you're using a stove, always check and adjust the heat when it almost fully cooked (during the last 5-10 mins). You don't really need to stir at all during the cooking process. Let it be.\n\nNote: I lived in South East Asia, I can cook rice using both method (stove and rice cooker but mainly using 1.8L rice cooker for my convenience as my stove has 2 sides top burner.)\nI usually cook Jasmine rice for my family of 4/5 people. I do hope this will help and answered your questions. Just don't give up, keep on trying till you cook that perfect rice. 👌😋🍚\n\nSorry if my English is not grammatically correct.

I thought my cooking was wrong, turns out that fokin blonde ninja turtle don't know how to cook at all.

The way my rice cooker is set up....
clifford yawn
You forgot to put a half teaspoon of salt and a quarter cup of butter in it while it was cooking. Where in the world did you learn how to cook rice? You left half the ingredients out! Oh I almost forgot always use minute don't have to rinse it because it has already been cooked and dehydrated and cooks in the microwave in just about 5 to 6 minutes... I will put my rice up against any chef in the world, including Martha Stewart! P.S. Whoever thought of the idea of inventing minute rice was a genius!

We indians have an intense knowledge of taste and cooking coz we have been using many different condiments, spices, ingredients to enhance the taste and aromas of foods, we are the best cooks.
nancy guzman
I knew that... Thats the Mexican way... Except we sometimes add onion and some garlic for white rice or red tomatoes, onion and garlic for red riceee👌👌
panda dafuq
We the Mexicans do it like this first we put the rice on the pan and let it cook without water or anything till it starts getting a little brown then we add the water and some seasoning and we letting boil with the steam so we do it a little different.
pearl city
