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.
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.
