Here are five lip-smacking rice recipes for you to try experimenting with, in a mini electric cooker.

Breakfast Rice Porridge

While you rush to wake up and get ready to face the day, add some rice and milk to your electric mini cooker, along with a stick of cinnamon or vanilla. Allow it to steam for 15-20 minutes before it turns to a thick sludge that you can sweeten with fresh fruits, honey, maple syrup and superfood seeds for a breakfast of champions! While you enjoy your bowl of porridge the electric mini cooker keeps another portion warm, just in case you need some more to get your student brain running.

Tomato Rice Soup

Instant Pulao

Craving good ol’ pulao and chhole? Use a mini electric cooker to throw in the ingredients and give it a good mix before you seal it shut and set the timer to let it cook. The simplicity of the pulao lies in the grainy and fragrant basmati rice, punctuated with the flavours of vegetables like peas, cauliflower and capsicum. Once it is done cooking, add a dollop of ghee on top to amplify the aroma and flavour.

Coconut Rice

A deliciously aromatic, mildly flavoured rice infused with coconut milk, aromatics and whole spices, coconut rice is the perfect one-pot meal to assemble using your electric mini cooker, at the end of a long day. Since the usage of this kitchen equipment does not require too much supervision, just add a quarter cup of rice and half a cup of coconut milk with some minced garlic, ginger and red chillies to let it steam and cook for 12-15 minutes. What this results in, is tender grains of rice with a tropical flavour that can be eaten with spicy curries or pickles.
