Frequently Asked Question!
Soaking rice speeds up the cooking by kick-starting the absorption of water before the rice even enters the pot. By letting rice soak for 30 minutes or so, you can reduce the cooking time of most rice varieties by about 20 percent.
Soaking rice can also affect the flavor of the finished dish. Acetylpyrroline, the flavor component in aromatic basmati rice that is mainly responsible for their characteristic popcorn-like aroma, dissipates during cooking. The longer your rice is over the heat, the less aromatic it will be. So by soaking the rice and shortening the cooking time, you get more flavorful results.
Rinsing rice, on the other hand, alters its texture when cooked. When you want perfectly separate grains, rinsing removes the thin layer of starch from the surface of each grain and helps keep the rice from sticking together. Long-grain rice, like basmati, is often rinsed for this reason.

The rice is a non-perishable food grain for consumption and has almost indefinite shelf life, when kept free from contaminants. The main challenge is to keep it free from weevil, insects and other contaminants.
In stored rice there is a possibility of weevil developing during hot and humid conditions as invisible eggs germinate. These weevils are not harmful. Before cooking rice is soaked & washed in the process the weevil gets washed away. However following advice may be followed for storage:-
- Store in air tight stainless steel container preferably; place the container in a cool dry place.
