I am going to show you how to cook rice. You may say who doesn’t know how to cook rice right? Well what I am going to show you here may not happen in your day to day cooking. The rice is so full of fragrance of the rice cooker. You’re even more confused? Let me show you.

3 ½ cup of long grain white rice
Wooden rice cooker that is made of Fir tree

Wash the rice and rinse, pour all the rice into the rice cooker. Put the rice cooker into a big sauteed pan with a very little of hot water on the bottom. Why a little water? We have to make sure the water in the cooking pan won’t reach to the rice inside the rice cooker, if it does, then the rice on the bottom will become mushy, then the steam will never goes up, therefore the rest of rice will never get done. Also make sure you cook it WITHOUT a cover and keep your eyes on it because you may need to add more water at any time.

After about 20 minutes, when you see the steam coming up from the rice, get all the rice out of the rice cooker and pour into a big container.

Add 2 1/2 cup of boiling water into the rice and cover it up with a lid, 10 minutes later stir it up from the bottom to the top to make sure every grain of rice absorbs enough water and cover for another 5 minutes. If you want you rice to be dry and grain by grain, use less water.

When the rice absorbs all the water, pour the rice back to the rice cooker; by now you should start smell the fragrance of the rice and the wooden rice cooker. Cook for another 15 to 20 minutes or until few minutes after you see the steam from the rice again ( WITHOUT any cover again).
The overnight rice is so good for fried rice.


3 ½ 杯的長粒白米

約 20 分鐘後,當你看到蒸汽從米飯中上來,将所有的米飯,倒入一個大容器中。
添加 2 1/2 杯的沸水进去蓋起蓋子,10 分鐘後从上至下搅拌一下,以確保每一粒米吸收足夠的水,再蓋5 分鐘。當米饭吸收了所有的水時,倒米飯回杉木蒸饭桶中回锅中再蒸 ;現在你應該開始闻到大米和杉木诱人的香味。再煮 15 到 20 分鐘,或直到你看見蒸汽再一次从飯中出来后再蒸几分钟。
