To get the best result, an indirect heating or steaming rice cooker is the recommended method to cook the Cap Gajah® Parboiled rice. A normal rice cooker works fine, but the rice at the bottom would be over-cooked. So, it is recommended to switch off the rice cooker once the rice is cooked.

*To have the best result, switch off after the rice is cooked. Let stand, covered, for about 5 minutes. Fluff before serving. 

A quick way to reheat the cooked rice on top of the cooking range is to add 2 tablespoons of water per cup of rice, and heat it for about 5 minutes with cover on. If microwave is used, heat (high) it for about 1.5 minutes per cup of rice. Alternative method is to steam the rice with boiling water for about 10 – 15 minutes.
