When time is short there are several convenient options that are especially quick to prepare. In comparison to cooking rice from scratch, these convenience products reduce cooking time by over 75 percent.
|| American rice (either regular or easy cook) is further processed by cooking and then blast frozen or chilled and packed as either frozen or chilled rice. Particularly suited to store-cupboard standby are canned rice and pouch-packed rice. These too have been pre-cooked and are also ready to serve in around three minutes.
Whichever type you opt for, the result is nutritious, loose-grained rice produced in a fraction of the time. These rices are particularly suitable for last minute single portion servings too and are well suited to microwave oven preparation as well as stovetop.
