You've Been Cooking Rice All Wrong, Here's The Correct And Delicious Way

Rice is the most important human food crop in the world, directly feeding more people than any other crop. It widely consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in Asia.

But several people are having a hard time cooking a perfect pot of rice.

Although rice seems relatively simple to cook, contradictory instructions abound regarding its preparation. To add in the preparation, however, some rice lovers suggest adding coconut oil to the water and rice when boiling.

The Coconut oil provides a delicious flavor and can be used to replace butter. Additionally, the oil can help prevent the rice from becoming too sticky.

Research on Coconut Oil and White Rice

Out of 8 different recipes on 38 varieties of rice tested in one study, the cooking method that proved to be the best at increasing the rice’s healthiness included adding coconut oil to boiling water, before stirring in raw rice. The rice was then cooled down in the refrigerator and consumed after 12 hours.

How does this work?

The method of cooking with coconut oil and then chilling the rice cuts the calories by changing the rice’s chemical composition. Digestible starch turns into indigestible starch, so the rice doesn’t get readily metabolized into glucose – if not used, glucose eventually converts into body fat and contributes to weight gain.

One cup of medium grain white rice usually contains about 246 calories. With this method, the calorie count goes down to as little as 147.

Recipe for Cooked Rice that Cuts the Calories in Half

1. Boil 2 cups of water and add a tablespoon of coconut oil (always opt for organic virgin coconut oil)

2. Stir in 1 cup of rice.

3. Cook for about 20 minutes, until the rice is cooked.

4. Put in the fridge for 12 hours.

5. Use cold or re-heat it – according to research, the rice maintains its newly acquired benefits even after heating it again.

When used in a certain way, coconut oil can make a bowl of white rice into a much healthier meal.
