Minute rice is a brand name for an instant rice. Available in white, brown and premium, this rice has been partially cooked and dried to reduce the final cooking time. The cooking instructions are the same for all brands of instant rice, not just Minute brand. Traditionally cooked on the hob with boiling water, Minute rice also cooks in the microwave oven. Avoid disaster and use a large bowl to prevent the rice from spilling over during cooking, and do not skip the sitting time at the end, which allows the rice to absorb the water and become tender.
