Parboiled rice is used for all polow recipes, so here is how you can boil rice the right way!



Step by Step method

  1. Wash rice several times until water runs clear.
  2. Soak rice with salt for at least about an hour. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t soak, but it does make a difference.
  3. Bring water to a boil. Add salt.
  4. Drain rice and Place into the boiling water.
  5. Keep an eye on it, as soon as the water starts boiling again it should take about 10 minutes for the rice to cook.
  6. While the rice cooks gently scoop the rice from the bottom of the pot and bring to the surface and release. Do this step several times. Do not stir.
  7. Place a colander in the sink. You might want to choose a colander where the holes are small so that the rice won’t escape.
  8. Check the rice to make sure it is cooked. It should be soft and cooked but not mushy. 
  9. Drain rice in colander.
  10. Rinse with cold water to stop cooking process.
