Tips for cooking rice

  • Measure the rice and water ratio with a measuring jug
  • Don't be tempted to lift the lid or stir while cooking
  • Allow rice to stand after cooking to absorb any remaining moisture
  • In a hurry? Why not try SunRice Microwave Cups (ready in 40 seconds) or Pouches (ready in 90 seconds).

Rice Cooker

  • Rinse brown rice grains with cold water
  • Place 1 cup of rice in a rice cooker bowl
  • Add 2 cups of water
  • Start cooking in the rice cooker. When rice finishes cooking, rice cooker will switch to ‘keep warm’ (after approx 25 minutes). Allow rice to stand for 5 minutes with the lid closed before serving.
  • Please note, instructions may vary according to rice cooker. Please check your user guide for specific instructions.
