Yuhui cooks one week's worth of rice
Also his first attempt at using the microwave oven to boil rice

October 26, 2008

News Facts
  • Yuhui boiled a week's worth of rice this evening.
  • This also marked his first real attempt at cooking rice in the microwave oven.
  • He used a large-sized Corning Ware container in his maiden attempt.
  • Previously, Yuhui had only boiled rice with a stove or open fire (ah, camping days...).
  • With only a vague idea of the required steps, he proceeded to cook his rice.
    • After cooking on high for 15 minutes, the rice came out hard and half-cooked.
    • Yuhui added more water and proceeded to cook it for another eight minutes on medium-high.
    • The rice was still too hard for his liking, so Yuhui added a bit more water and cooked it for another four minutes.
    • The rice finally came out fluffier and more palatable.
  • The remainder of the rice is now stored in the refrigerator for future consumption.

Quotes, attributable to Yuhui
"As the staple ingredient of a true Singaporean diet, rice must be cooked to savoury perfection -- soft and fluffy, yet delightfully tasty."
"The modern Singaporean relies on electronics to perform even the most basic of tasks. Cooking of rice with a microwave oven is therefore simply the next evolutionary step in twenty-first century home cooking -- technologically speaking."
