I get asked this question a lot by my non-Indian patients. Here is the traditional Ayurvedic way of cooking rice.

Rice is a medicine in Ayurveda. It is the lightest food for digestion and also the first food mentioned in Ayurveda.

But, how to cook rice? Here’s a step by step for y’all.

Step 1: Soak rice for at least about an hour.

I recommend Sona Masoori or Ambe Mohar varieties for everyday use.

Step 2: Boil Water

You can take twice or thrice the quantity of rice.

Step 3: Add soaked rice to boiling water.

Cook covered.

Step 4: Cook till bubbles.

Once it bubbles, remove the cover and cook rice until it turns soft.

Step 5: Strain the excess water out.

Enjoy with a side of daal and cooked vegetables.
