Yes, parboiled rice can be steamed! In fact, steaming is a great way to cook parboiled rice, as it preserves its nutrients and gives it a light, fluffy texture.
To steam parboiled rice, simply add the rice to a steamer basket and place the basket over a pot of boiling water. Cover the pot and steam the rice for 15-20 minutes, or until it is cooked through. Once the rice is cooked, remove the steamer basket from the pot and let the rice fluff for a few minutes before serving.
If you don’t have a steamer basket, you can also steam parboiled rice in a colander. To do this, place the colander in a large pot of boiling water and make sure that the bottom of the colander does not touch the water. Cover the pot and steam the rice for 15-20 minutes, or until it is cooked through. Once the rice is cooked, remove the colander from the pot and let the rice fluff for a few minutes before serving.
Here are a few tips for steaming parboiled rice:
- Use a 1:2 ratio of rice to water. This means that for every 1 cup of rice, you will need 2 cups of water.
- Rinse the rice before steaming to remove any excess starch.
- Do not stir the rice while it is steaming. This can release starch and make the rice sticky.
- Once the rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork to separate the grains.
