The solution when the electricity goes out and you can't cook is using a rice cooker.

  29 Februari 2024 11:00 - Cooking rice using a rice cooker is often the choice of many people. Apart from being practical, the resulting rice is fluffier and perfectly cooked. But you need to remember, the rice cooker can turn on if there is electric power. So what if the lights go out?

No need to worry, because you can cook rice in a regular pan. Unfortunately, not everyone succeeds in cooking rice using a pan. Generally, people boil rice with a certain amount of water when cooking in a pan. Unfortunately, sometimes the resulting rice is still hard if there is a lack of water or, conversely, it is watery and sticks to the surface of the pan.

To get around this, you can imitate YouTube user Dapur Cinta when cooking rice in a pan. Instead of boiling, this netizen has his own way of cooking rice. Even so, the resulting rice is still fluffy and perfectly cooked, you know. Curious about how?

How to cook rice using a regular pan.

First, wash the rice that will be cooked. To make it perfectly clean, rice can be rinsed 2-3 times. If so, put the rice in a container then add enough water.
