What can I make in a rice cooker Besides rice?
- Here are 6 things – other than rice – that you can make in a rice cooker: 1. Soups & Stews – throw some veggies into your rice cooker along with some liquid gold (chicken broth, bone broth, etc) and let it simmer for a slow-cooked, tasty soup. 3. Soft or Hard boiled eggs – this is my FAVORITE thing to make in my rice cooker.
Can you cook basmati rice in a rice cooker?
I cook basmati in my rice cooker all the time and don’t have any problems: Then add your rice to your rice cooker and fill with water/broth to a little above the measurement line in your cooker.
So if you used 2 measuring cups of rice, add liquid to just a little above the 2 line.
How much water do you put in a rice cooker for basmati rice?
Sold as “parboiled” (not half-cooked at home) – 2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice. For Indian style rices like Basmati or Jasmine, less water is needed as a drier rice is desired, use no more than 1 1/2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice.
How long does basmati rice take to cook in rice cooker?
Should basmati rice be soaked before cooking?
Most long grain rice sold does not have to be soaked. However, some types of imported rice and basmati rice do have to be soaked. It separates the grains and allows for a more fluffy, less sticky rice. I soak and drain basmati and all imported rice for 2 hours in cold water prior to cooking.
