What happens if you don’t Soak glutinous rice?
The reason for this is because instead of boing glutinous rice you steam it instead causing uneven water absorption if you dont soak the rice beforehand. The reason for steaming is that glutinous rice would turn to mush if boiled/ cooked conventionally in the rice cooker as they tend to absorb too much water.

Why brown rice is bad for you?
Brown Rice Contains Antinutrients and May Be Higher in Arsenic. Antinutrients are plant compounds that may reduce your body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients. Brown rice contains an antinutrient known as phytic acid, or phytate. It may also contain higher amounts of arsenic, a toxic chemical.
What can I add to rice to make it sticky?
Fill a large pot with 2 cups (450 milliliters) of water and add a few extra tablespoons of water. Using more water than you actually need will help make the ricer stickier and clumpier. Consider adding a dash of salt. This will give the rice some flavor and make it taste less bland.

Why is my basmati rice sticky?
If a pot of basmati rice is a sticky mess, it’s usually because, like pasta, it was cooked with too little water. To unstick it, dump the rice into a larger saucepan, add about a 1/2 of water and heat on low. Gently break up the clumps with a fork. Drain, if any water remains in the bottom.
How much water do I need for 2 cups of basmati rice?
The correct rice to water ratio is 1: 1.5 (1 cup of rice to 1.5 cups of water ). Most people use 1 3/4 cups of water or even 2 cups of water, AND they rinse the rice which makes it waterlogged and makes the mushy rice problem even worse.
Should you rinse basmati rice?
