To add to the salads is a better fit loose long grain rice. So when cooking stood out as less glutinous starch, grains should be rinsed thoroughly. Pour it into a sieve and rinse under running water until it will become absolutely clean. In the absence of sieves, you can do the same in a regular bowl. Fill the grain with water, wash, drain the murky water, repeat the procedure several times. In the final times you can douse the cereal with boiling water.
Pour the rice pot and fill it with water in a ratio of 1:1, that is, a Cup of riceand you will need 1 Cup of water. Don't be afraid, this amount would be sufficient. Rice easily absorbs the water, it will continue to do so after cooking, already in the salad. If the water is too much, it can turn to mush.
Put the saucepan on the fire, bring to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to low and keep the pan on the fire until it is absorbed all the water. Once that happens, turn off the stove, cover the pan with a lid, wait 5 minutes.
Boiled rice will turn out crumbly and slightly dry. Let it cool and add to salad.
The rice will turn out much better if you take a special parboiled varieties, which do not boil soft and keep their shape no matter how well cooked.
If you are planning to prepare a salad in the morning, in the evening pour washed rice in boiling water in the ratio 1:2. Tightly cover the pot and leave it on the table. In the morning you will be ready crisp rice.
