HOW TO COOK JAMAICAN RICE & PEAS
MORE INFORMATION &TIPS
1) To ensure that you do not get a soggy snack, ensure the rice is fully drained after washing so that the water measurements for cooking are not off balanced.
2) The amount of water added to cook the rice will affect the end result. Too much water will result in a sticky rice but too little will result in uncooked rice. The secret for a perfect textured grains is to have the right amount of water. The ratio of rice to liquid is usually 1:2. However, you can experiment with the type of rice you have and your personal preference.
Use the same container for measuring the rice and water.
3) Washing the rice ensures that most of the starch (and other yuck) is washed away therefore causes less sticking of the cooked grains.
4) The type of rice will affect the end results. Basmati rice is best for single grained when cooked.
