Cook the Perfectly Healthy Rice: 3 Useful Tips

Rice is a favorite food for most people but only few know the right way to cook healthy and tasty rice. Here are 3 tips to help you do that:

1. Choose Healthy Rice

Avoid heavily processed, modified or bleached rice because they might look good on the outside but are very unhealthy and lack nutritional value so choose only the healthy varieties: 

Usually the rice that doubles in quantity after cooking is a great choice: one that does not look bright white (bleached), or is enriched. For best results, use aged rice (one that is dried out naturally for a minimum of 3-4 months after harvesting) that is authentic and parboiled because it is very nutritious and healthy. Brown rice is also a great choice because it has more fiber.

 2. Use a Healthy Rice Cooking Pot

Use a pot that is 100% non-toxic and cooks with gentle heat so the delicate complex carbs in rice can be preserved. Avoid metal and ceramic pots because they reactively leach and destroy nutrients with their harsh heat leaving rice mushy or soggy.

The healthiest choice is a pot made from unglazed primary clay or pure clay (you can order one from MEC Store). Pure clay is naturally non-toxic and cooks with gentle far infrared heat that keeps complex carbs and other nutrients in rice intact. As a result, rice turns out soft, fluffy and tastes great – no need to add oils or additives!

3. Follow the Right Process

Once you have a MEC clay pot, follow these simple steps to make sure you get it right every time:

  1. Add rice to the pot and wash it twice.
  2. Add water per measure (Typically, the rice to water ratio should be 1:2, which means you should use 2 cups of water for cooking 1 cup of rice or simply follow instructions given on the rice bag.)
  3. Set on stove and start on medium. It should be done in 20-30 minutes!

Hope you cook the perfect healthy rice by following these tips. For getting a pure clay rice cooker, visit MEC Store and order one today to have it delivered right at your doorstep!

I hail from a small but popular city of India known as Kurukshetra, mentioned numberless times in Indian/Hindu mythology because of some amazing historical events that supposedly took place there. I have done B.Tech in Information Technology but I decided not to be a Software Engineer as my qualification would have me be because it was all such a cliché. I love to live like a free spirit and do whatever I feel like doing at any moment. I have tried to work in multiple fields but none of them was interesting enough to keep me tied-up for too long. I am a typical Freelancer. I know I am destined to achieve greatness but when and how, I don't know yet.
