What is Brown Rice?

Brown rice translates to "rough rice" in Chinese. It's unpolished whole grain rice, which means the bran, germ, and aleurone layer aren't removed like in conventional polished white rice. Brown rice is the similar to the white rice; however, it is more nutritious and higher in fibre. Making excellent rice may appear simple, but it may be rather difficult. Unfortunately, if the cooking time, method, or water-to-rice ratio could be more precise and perfect, you may end up with uncooked, hard, crispy, burnt, mushy, or gummy rice. Furthermore, each grain has its personality, and each type of rice takes special attention to be flawless.

Ordinarily, boiling a pot of brown rice on the hob takes about an hour, but making Brown Rice in the pressure cooker takes only half the time!

The ingredients

  • Rice. Brown rice, with its somewhat nutty flavour and chewy texture, brings more to the table than just its ability to soak up sauces and fill our appetites. It is also high in fibre, vitamins, magnesium, and a small amount of protein.
  • Water. For the fluffiest, most ideal rice, the water-to-rice ratio is important.
  • Salt. It contributes to the flavour of the rice.

Tips for making brown rice

  • Remove any leftover pressure, carefully open the pressure cooker, stir, and serve the rice as desired.
  • Put any remaining rice in a covered jar and refrigerate it for 2 to 3 days, or freeze for several months.
  • When reheating, add a dash of water! You have the option of reheating in the microwave or on the hob.
  • When heating the rice, spritz it with water and heat it until it is warmed completely. It should absorb the entire amount of liquid and become moist!
