In the event that your rice cooker has a “darker rice” setting, you are in karma! It is now intended to cook dark colored rice accurately, so you should simply utilize the rice cooker directions for darker rice. If not, don’t surrender – you can in any case cook dark colored rice, simply continue following my bearings underneath

Do you have the estimating cup that accompanied your rice cooker? 

More often than not, rice cookers accompany their very own estimating cups that are not a similar size as an ordinary cup (they are around 2/3 to 3/4 of a cup). Why they do it along these lines is past me 🙂 I’m certain huge amounts of rice were demolished in light of the fact that individuals utilized the normal estimating cup to gauge rice and filling the water to the named water stamps in the rice cooker, bringing about an inappropriate proportion and terrible tasting rice

Rice cooker has lines inside the bowl marked with the numbers. Those lines show how much water to put inside the rice cooker dependent on the number of cups of rice. For instance, on the off chance that you put in 2 cups of rice, top the water off to the line that has the number 2 on it. 

Notwithstanding, the water level lines of the rice cooker are just exactly on the off chance that you utilize the cup that accompanied your rice cooker! In the event that you utilize ordinary estimating cup, don’t utilize the water level lines to decide the measure of water required! Rather, utilize the darker rice to water proportion for rice cooker underneath.

Amounts under 1 cup of rice won’t cook well in a rice cooker.

Add salt 

Salt has an enormous effect on the darker rice taste, so remember to include it. I generally add salt legitimately to the rice cooker, directly in the wake of including rice and water.

 Cook in the rice cooker 

Set the rice cooker to cook 🙂 If you have the “Dark-colored Rice” setting, utilize that. On the off chance that you just have the “Rice” or “White Rice” setting, simply utilize that – in the event that you utilized the dark-colored rice to water proportion above, it should turn out fine and dandy. 

Make a point to never open the rice cooker while the rice is cooking, or it will wreckage up the rice! Be patient and hold up until the cooking cycle is finished. 

Fluff with fork subsequent to cooking:

At the point when the rice is finished cooking in the rice cooker, it won’t resemble the fleecy rice on the above picture. So as to persuade it to be cushioned, you need to lighten it with a fork! Simply get a normal fork and mix the rice with it, isolating the grains until it looks scrumptious and soft. 

Add discretionary seasonings
