Before cooking parboiled rice we do not have to rinse or soak.


Pour the rice into the cold, unsalted water (1 cup rice to 1.5-2 cups of water) and bring to a boil uncovered. You can also cook in the broth. Boil for 12-18 minutes on low heat until the rice absorbs the water. Time start to count from the moment of boiling water. Simmer, covered, with a slightly ajar cover until the "craters" and stew under a tight lid. Cooked grain of rice is soft and delicate.


After cooking, we leave it for 10 minutes, then pour the cold water and stir gently.


Parboiled rice is a perfect addition to any kind of roast, fried and cooked fish and vegetable dishes. It is perfect as an ingredient in salads or fruit desserts.

Bon appétit!
