  • You Should Be Cooking Your Rice With Vinegar. Here's Why.
    Rice comes in 40,000 varieties, including long-grain white, short-grain white, brown, wild, jasmine, black, glutinous, and sticky. Each culture has a preferred variety of rice. Americans love Carolina Gold's long-grain white or brown rice, while Indian and Pakistani cuisine favors aromatic basmati rice. Spanish cuisine, on the other hand, prefers the Bamba or Valencia short-grain rice used in paella, while Italian cuisine enjoys short-grain Arborio rice used in risotto.
    The proper rice-cooking method is a matter of preference and tradition. Some home cooks insist on rinsing all rice varieties before cooking to remove extra starch and create fluffier rice, while others argue that only long-grain white rice needs to be rinsed. Additionally, replacing water with different liquids during rice preparation, such as coconut milk or chicken stock, can change the flavor and add another dimension to the grain.
    However, if you want rice that is light and fluffy, you should consider adding some vinegar to the pot. While vinegar might not taste great on its own, in a serving of rice, it's a total game-changer. If your rice is never quite as fluffy as you'd like, adding white vinegar to long-grain white rice can help. Within 15 minutes, rice can easily turn into a burnt or gummy mess, but using vinegar can prevent this.
    So, why does vinegar make a difference? Vinegar helps in cooking rice because it is mildly acidic, which means it can break down some of the starch in rice. This starch breakdown helps the rice grains to separate and become fluffier. By adding a small amount of vinegar to the pot, you can avoid sticky and clumpy rice, and instead achieve light and fluffy rice that is a pleasure to eat.
    To cook your rice with vinegar, simply follow your usual rice-cooking method and add a splash of white vinegar to the water or broth. The amount of vinegar to add depends on your preference, but a tablespoon or two should be sufficient. Allow the vinegar to mix with the water before adding the rice, and then proceed with cooking as usual.
    In conclusion, cooking rice with vinegar can make a significant difference in the texture and fluffiness of the rice. While there are many varieties of rice and different preferences on how to cook them, adding a small amount of vinegar to the pot can help achieve the desired results. So, next time you cook rice, remember to keep a bottle of vinegar handy and enjoy light and fluffy rice every time!
  • Subtitles section
  • Vinegar might not taste great on its own, but in a serving of rice, it's a total game-changer.
  • Here's why you'll want to keep a bottle handy the next time you cook some up.
  • Rice comes in 40,000 varieties, including long-grain white, short-grain white, brown, wild, jasmine, black, glutinous, and sticky.
  • White rice, brown rice, those are just some of the rices I love.
  • Also basmati." The proper rice-cooking method is a matter of preference and tradition, as is how much water or salt to use when boiling, steaming, or using a rice cooker.
  • Some home cooks insist that all rice varieties be rinsed before cooking to remove the extra starch and create fluffier rice, while others argue only long-grain white rice needs to be rinsed.
  • Each culture has a preferred variety of rice.
  • Americans prefer Carolina Gold's long-grain white or brown rice for popular dishes like dirty Cajun rice.
  • Indian and Pakistani cuisine favors aromatic basmati rice, and Spanish cuisine prefers the Bamba or Valencia short-grain rice used in paella.
  • Italian cuisine enjoys short-grain Arborio rice used in risotto.
  • Replacing water with different liquids during rice preparation, like coconut milk or chicken stock, changes the flavor, adding another dimension to the grain.
  • Other types of liquids can be used to change its texture without affecting the flavor, Although plain tap water will do the trick, for rice that's light and fluffy, you should consider adding some vinegar to the pot.
  • Here's why.
  • Rice is as easy to make as it is to mess up.
  • Within 15 minutes, rice can turn into a burnt or gummy mess.
  • If your rice is never quite as fluffy as you'd like, adding white vinegar to long-grain white rice can help.
  • The acid helps break down sticky starches from the grain's exterior, preventing the rice from sticking together in the pot.
  • If you're concerned about flavor, rest assured the amount of vinegar you will be adding won't be noticeable.
  • For every cup of rice, one teaspoon of white vinegar and two cups of liquid should be added to a medium saucepan.
  • Unless specified, the traditional ratio of water to rice is two parts water to one part rice.
  • Although rice cookers often require less liquid, cover the white rice and lower the heat when the water boils.
  • Once the water has been absorbed, adjust the seasoning with kosher salt, fresh herbs, or another liquid like citrus or soy sauce to taste.
  • Although it's less popular, rice can also be made like pasta.
  • Boil rice in lots of water and strain the grain when it's done to your liking.
  • Along with preventing cooked rice from sticking together or to the pot, adding vinegar to rice has several health benefits.
  • According to a study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, meals including vinegar, especially ones with a high glycemic index such as rice, cause less of a blood sugar spike after consumption.
  • It also improves insulin sensitivity, potentially making it an effective choice for slowing the onset of diabetes.
  • Vinegar can also be used to kill some harmful bacteria before eating foods of questionable origin.
  • And although the evidence for the claims is not conclusive, there's a chance vinegar's low calorie count can aid in weight loss and increase heart health.
  • Instead of assuming every bottle of vinegar is made the same, you should probably check the nutrition facts.
  • Sometimes, sugar can sneak its way into vinegar depending on what it's mixed with.
  • Vinegar itself doesn't come without risks, either.
  • When adding it to rice, be careful not to pour too much.
  • If you do, it can cause acid reflux and upset your stomach.
  • If you don't have vinegar on hand, there are a few other ways to liven up your rice.
  • If you want to make it fluffier, you can use a fork or spoon to fluff it up yourself before serving it.
  • This will also prevent grains of rice from clumping together.
  • A strainer is another essential tool to stop clumping.
  • By running water through a rice-filled, fine strainer, much of the starch will be washed off.
  • To prevent your rice from becoming mushy until serving time, simply set a towel over it to catch condensation as it escapes from the hot pan.
  • Sometimes, the poor state of your finished rice product is explained by simple human error.
  • There's also a chance you might be cranking the heat too high as you impatiently wait for dinner to be ready.
  • This can result in different inner and outer textures, and perhaps even some burning.

  • Rice should rest for around 10 minutes undisturbed before it's ready to serve.
