To those of you who have cooked rice with coconut milk or other liquids or stocks, you will probably know the frustration of not being able to get the rice to cook properly.
It is still a mystery to me why we get that sometimes. I make it a point to use the same quantity we normally need to cook white rice and add the coconut milk as an addition.
Yet, I get a pot of half-cooked tomato rice today. Some of the grains aren’t cooked and it is still ‘sandy’. So, I took the whole pot, put them in the steamer and steam. The rice still refused to cook thoroughly.
Fed up, I pour them back to the rice cooker and leave it on ‘Warm’. BTW, in case you do not know, when the rice is cooked, you cannot press ‘Cook’ again because the darn button will pop back to ‘Warm’ like a stubborn child.
By the time I moved the rice from the pot to the steamer and back to the pot, I have lost my appetite. Sheesh…..
Anyway, I have lost my taste senses because of the darn haze. I am having a sore-throat, runny nose and sneeze that goes into frenzy and won’t stop when it starts.
So much for food blog…This is beginning to sound like a rant blog.
