Preparation Time: 2 minutes    Cooking Time: 10minutes

  • 1 cup pearl pishori rice
  • 6 cups water
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt (optional)

  2. 2. Put 6 cups water in a wide pan. Add salt, lemon juice and oil. Bring to boil.
  3. 3. Add rinsed rice and stir once with a fork. Boil on medium heat for about 7-8 minutes or till a grain of rice feels soft when pressed between the thumb and the index finger. Do not cover while cooking.
  4. 4. Strain through a big colander. Fluff the boiled rice with a fork to let out the steam.
  5. 5. For stir fried rice, it is a good idea to spread the boiled rice immediately on al large tray. After it cools, refrigerate the boiled rice for 1-2 hours before stir frying. Let it cool properly if you want to stir fry as the beautiful long grains will break if hot rice is stir fried.
