I always give my rice a light rinse more for clensing purposes than anything. (Even the rice from the US haha!) And as someone also mentioned previously in this post ...sauteing lightly before adding the liquid makes for great rice....and you can add minced garlic, onions etc just adjusting liquid if needed. In the Great White North here we produce rice in natural bodies of water...mainly in Saskatchewan...."northern wild rice" it is exceptional in Indian recipes!

The recommendations on the box of the rice I usually use, says not to wash it.

They are if you eat them, or breathe them! I remember when my kids were little (they are 30 and 27 now) the recommendation was to use cornstarch based powder on babies.

When we had our kids (now 5 and 2) we were told not to use any sort of powder on them as it inevitably gets breathed in and is not that great for lungs, especially on young kids.

well, guys, i wouldn't worry too much at this point.......just don' tcreate an atomic cloud when powdering them and we know you dad's .......if a little bit works then let's just be on the safe side and really have a go at it.......and if we're off topic so be it.......

Charlie, I just find that washing rice whether they say so or not.......makes my rice less glutinous.....certainly all that white starch that comes off in the washings has to be acting like glue otherwise when it cooks.......and I sure have found some interesting rice in KZ, however......:):) probably irradated.......jest kidding.....:)

sorry that I misunderstood---(my mind went to all the nuclear testing that'd been done in the area so I'm sorry if my brain synapsed to the "joke" mode........ seriously, you're right, the Kazakhs' plovs are so good and full of great things but I feel quite guilty in not having any of the plov recipes on hand........I have a Kazakh friend who is a very good cook and I'll ask her and let you know.....
