I have questions about cooking rice. Clearly the rice in the 2nd recipe is white rice (perhaps even quick cooking rice?) since it cooks so quickly. But I don't get this "Take 2/5 of the rice and wash it. Boil 3/5 of the water..." What do you do with the other 3/5 of the rice and 2/5 of the water?

If the "2/5" and "3/5" were replaced with "2 cups" and "3 cups", it would make sense, so I did that. Beth Ogilvie 14:19, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

What is the secret of cooking brown rice in a solar cooker? Can it be done in a cooker that gets up to about 250°F? All of my solar cooking failures have involved rice, when I've tried to cook rice and other things at the same time in one pot. Do I need to cook the rice separately? Do I need to bring the water to a near boil first?

I'll post this question on the Solar Food Processing Forum. Beth Ogilvie 14:19, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

The 3rd recipe is "Lentils and Rice" but it doesn't seem to have rice in it...

For brown rice, try using 3 C water to 2 C rice. On the stove top, these proportions prevent the rice from getting gummy. They may help in a solar cooker too.

In a solar cooker I usually use a ration of 1 cup rice to 1 3/4 cup water. I too find that using the usual ration of 1 cup rice to 2 cups water gives you gummy rice in a solar cooker. Tom Sponheim 15:42, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
