    brown rice

    Because brown rice is a lot higher in fiber than white rice, you can’t simply adopt the “white rice” directions on the rice cooker or the rice will not show up tough, not soft.



    Rinse & drain two cups of brown rice.


    Place it in the rice cooker.  Rather of filling the cooker with H2O to the “2 cup” mark, fill it to the “three cup” mark in your rice cooker. That usually means 3 cups of water for the 2 cups of brown rice.


    Add a half teaspoon of salt.


    Turn cooker on.

      I agree with you Saleheen a hub can be made out of this, I dread even trying to cook brown rice.  I tried it once, and it took forever, and ever to get done. My mom loves it.

    I never put salt in my rice but each to his own.

    Yes, brown rice takes twice as long to cook as white rice, and needs about twice as much water as white rice.

    I do rice in a saucepan.  For a half cup of white (or basmati) rice, I put in 1 1/3 cups of water.  After initally boiling, I cook on low heat for about 15 minutes, or until the water is completely absorbed.

    For the same amount of brown rice, I use 2 cups of water. Cook for 30 minutes, until the water is absorbed, and the rice is chewy but soft.

    You may need to make some adjustments, depending on the type of rice, and your cooking equipment.

    And then there are lots of people who say do not rinse it. You are washing away the nutrients. kind of what white rice is.

    Good rice needs to be rinsed to keep it from getting sticky. Rinsing takes off the starch dust and soaking it for a few minutes makes it all the better. I use less water too.

      That is the staple diet of most Asians.. it is the simplest thing to cook .. twice the amount of water.. and leave it in the cooker.. 15 min on slow heat and vola  its done.. adding salt is optional!! smile   easy peasy!!
      Just one rinse would do as you would wash away the iron and the fiber content and be left with plain carbs..

    One can also quickly brown it in a hot pan first.
