Most asians (I think) nowadays have a rice cooker at home to cook rice because rice is such a staple. But over in my house, we do not use a rice cooker. We use this magic cooker thermal pot thing so we’ll have to cook the rice on a stove first before putting it into the thermal pot. The whole point is to save energy (aka gas bills) because the rice just needs to be around half-cooked and putting it into the thermal pot (which doesn’t use any electricity at all) will do the rest of the cooking. Therefore, I am quite familiar with cooking rice without using a rice cooker and am rather proud of this fact haha. Most of my friends of around my age do not really know how to do it so let me boast a little and show how it is done.
Yay a new series! Posts under “Technical Troubles” will record my attempts in conquering techniques and being one step closer to becoming a masterchef LOL. This first post will be on julienning vegetables – cutting them into thin sticks.
