Preparation of steamed rice
The best is to anticipate this recipe the day before to soak the rice in a container filled with water, all night. Soaking cereals and pulses allows them to release enzyme inhibitors that impede digestion, and this dipping makes nutrients more assimilable.
Then throw away the water and rinse the rice several times.
Heat the water in the bottom of your steamer to full steam (the lid must let steam pass).
Once there is a lot of steam, you can put the rice directly into the sieve of the steamer (some grains will pass through the holes but very little in fact …). If you prefer not to lose any grain of rice, choose a narrow-bottomed container so that the holes in the strainer are not all covered and allow steam to pass.
Let steam 30 minutes to obtain a tasty steamed rice!
