Cooking Rice

IMG_5128

I’m often surprised how many people ask me about cooking rice in their Thermomix.   There have been a few different time/temperature/speed variations in the Everyday Cookbook over the years   I always cook rice in my Thermomix using the method outlined below with 100% success.  I used to have a rice cooker, but gave it to the op shop a few years ago!  Rice cooked in your Thermomix is perfectly cooked & fluffy every time.  Whether I’m cooking 100g or 400g of rice, I always use this method.  If you’re cooking rice to accompany a meal, the recommendation is to allow approximately 70g raw rice per person.  After a few goes, you will work out how many grams of rice to cook for your family meals (allowing for big eaters or kids) without having any wastage or not enough.

Cooking White Rice

up to 400g white rice
900g water

Method:
1) Place water in TM bowl.  Insert TM basket, zero scales & weigh desired amount of rice.
2) Cook 16/Varoma temperature/speed 4.

Note: If you’re cooking a large amount of rice (400g), you may need to cook for 20 minutes.  You can also go to speed 5 for the first 20-30 seconds, just so the water coats all of the rice.

Cooking Brown Rice

up to 400g brown rice
1200g water

Method:
1) Place water in TM bowl.  Insert TM basket, zero scales & weigh desired amount of rice.
2) Cook 35 minutes/Varoma temperature/speed 4.

Notes:

You can also rinse raw rice, once you’ve weighed it, to get off the excess starch.

Use the hook on your TM spatula to remove the rice basket after it’s been cooked, as it will be hot!
