To cook parboiled rice on the stove, bring 2 parts water to a boil in a pot for every 1 part rice. Add a pinch of salt, if desired. Once the water is boiling, add the rice, stir to combine, then reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until all of the water has been absorbed. Remove the pot from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork and serving.
- You can soak parboiled rice in water for 30 minutes before cooking to reduce the cooking time by a few minutes.
- If you want to cook parboiled rice in the microwave, combine 2¼ cups water and 1 cup rice in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Reduce setting to 50% power and microwave for 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork and serving.
- Parboiled rice has a slightly nutty flavor and chewy texture. It is a good choice for dishes like rice salad, pilaf, and risotto.
