The Long Rice Challenge, NOT a Piece of Cake!
Long rice or Indian rice is challenging to make. Consider the rice rules and abide by them to obtain the perfect long rice texture.
One, fry for 1 minute with one tablespoon of oil or butter. It helps the rice to ripen right.
The second rule, lower the heat to the maximum level and keep the rice pot closed for 3o minutes. The steam helps the rice to be soft and on point.
Some Personal Issues with Long Rice
My husband steals into the kitchen and opens the long rice pot to check on it. The first thing I do is take a deep breath. The second thing is driving Mr. Arbid out of the kitchen.
He always tells me that nothing will happen to rice. I explain to him that some people, I am one, see the difference between textures, and he doesn’t believe me!
If you open the pot during the process, the texture of the rice will differ from when it is closed.
If you agree, leave in the comments your rice procedure, I’ll be more than happy to read them!

The vapor and the pot's heat are essential to the perfect rice texture. The rice must not be sticky or crunchy. It will have this perfect texture that you will know when you see it.
