Steps for the preparation of brown rice in Microwave for 2 people

Now, I will come to the steps for cooking the best brown rice in microwave for 2 people. Follow them carefully. Else, your entire preparation might go in vain.

Step 1

Measure the long grain brown rice properly in a bowl. Rinse it properly under water. Make sure to use a bowl which is safe for use in the microwave oven. Using a glass bowl is my preference because it helps me to see the rice expand while cooking. When you add water to the glass full of rice, make sure to add them properly so that the rice is very flat from the top.

Step 2

Check the highest power of the microwave oven. When the bowl is placed properly, set the power to the highest. 

Step 3

After 10 minutes, stop the microwave and see if the rice is half cooked. Even if you see water on the bowl, don’t be amazed. Since brown rice takes a lot of water, it will soak up the water in the next half of cooking. When you begin with the next half of cooking, make sure to place a dish towel over the bowl. The next stage of cooking should be done at power level of 5.

Step 4

Once the cooking is done, do not open the microwave. Let it rest for 5 minutes. This will keep the rice steaming and also soak up the moisture. 

Step 5

Take a plastic spatula and serve the rice on the plate. While serving, make sure that all the rice grains are pumped up. 

Serve the rice on the plate. Or you can also keep it inside the fridge and store it there. Whenever you reheat the rice next time in microwave, make sure to sprinkle a little bit of water.
