鑄鐵鍋坎飯好食秘訣 Secret of Making Perfect Rice by Cast Iron Pot

鑄鐵鍋坎飯 Making Rice by Cast Iron Pot

話說我地舊年扔左個電飯煲,原因係個電飯煲蓋長年積聚左煲飯蒸氣,但又清洗唔到,結果咁豐富既澱粉質就惹黎左好多蝨住左係入面…諗返起個畫面都覺得恐怖。

之後周圍睇資料,發現想煲飯其實都好多方法。想搵個好d既電飯煲,電飯煲貴起上黎都幾得人驚。聽講過日式既土鍋用黎坎飯一流,不過香港唔太搵到,要日本訂返黎。有人又話蒸飯可以確保無飯焦,唔會浪費,不過蒸飯又會無咁有飯香,而且器具多d無咁方便。

搵下搵下,發現原來用鑄鐵鍋都可以坎飯,平時個鍋又可以煮下湯,個外型又好睇,所以就買左個Le Creuset 18cm既round casserole黎當我地既飯煲。而後來又覺得佢有少少太大個,入手多個Vermicular 14cm鑄鐵鍋,兩個人開餐就岩岩好!

今次就分享下我地平時係點煮飯架啦。

We threw away our rice cooker last year after we found out fleas were living in the inside of the lid of the rice cooker… The steam of rice accumulated in the lid made that a perfect habitat for the fleas… That’s really really gross every time I pictured the moment we discovered that.

Then we did some research and found that there are actually many ways to cook a bowl of rice. We tried to look for a better rice cooker but turned out that a nice one could be quite pricey. We heard that Japanese earthen pot is the perfect tool to make rice but that can only be bought in Japan. We also heard that people steam rice because there won’t be any rice cracker leftover and won’t cause wastage. However, you need more utensils to steam rice and the flavour is not as good.

We happened to find out that we could actually make rice by cast iron pot. We could also use it for other purposes like making soup and a cast iron pot is actually good looking. With these advantages, we eventually bought a Le Creuset 18cm round casserole to replace our rice cooker. Later, we thought that LC casserole is a bit too large and then we also bought a Vermicular 14cm round pot which is ideal for making rice for two!

Let us share how to make rice for our each meal.

要煲得一碗粒粒分明又粒粒飽滿既靚飯,原來都幾多野可以留意。我地就選揀左用鑄鐵鍋坎飯既方法,除左因為個煲美觀,用上黎方便之外,仲因為鑄鐵鍋保溫能力同鎖水能力強,所以可以令米粒受熱較均勻,亦做到飯粒水份豐盈既感覺。

To make a fluffy and rich in texture bowl of rice, there are plenty of areas we need to look into. We have chosen to make rice by a cast iron pot. Not only is it good looking and convenient to use, its abilities of heat insulation and water locking are also excellent. This makes the rice evenly heated and well moistened

當然,要飯好食既首要條件係d米夠靚 lol 我地多數都係買日本珍珠米食,尤其鍾意食新潟越光米 (´・ω・`)

依度一嘜米係我地平時兩個人食既份量,煮完出黎會有兩碗。

Of course to make a nice bowl of rice we first need good quality rice. We usually buy Japanese pearl rice, especially Koshihikari from Niigata (´・ω・`)

Here it’s one rice cup of rice. This can make 2 bowls of rice.

洗3轉米,之後用水浸米15分鐘

Rinse the rice for 3 times and then immense in water for 15 mins

倒走本身碗內既浸米水,加入返稍稍多過一嘜既水,將佢地倒晒入鑄鐵鍋

Pour away the water and then add back water of slightly more than one rice cup. Put them into a cast iron pot

開中火,間中攪攪佢避免痴底

Medium heat on, stir to prevent rice sticking on the pot

見到大滾就可以轉返細火,直至泡泡變返細細蝦眼狀

When it comes to boil like this, we can switch to low heat until the bubbles become smaller

冚蓋,細火滾佢8分鐘,然後就可以熄火,由佢焗12分鐘

Cover the lid. Cook it for 8 mins on low heat. Then we can switch off fire and leave it there, let it rest for 12 mins

焗完飯,記住要攪返鬆佢,俾水蒸氣揮發一下,食起上黎就會無咁痴口,更粒粒分明
依個鍋煮兩人份量既飯真係fit晒

Before serving, we need to stir the rice to let the vapour out. This can give a more fluffy texture to the rice
This pot perfectly fits the portion of rice for two

同樣係煮兩碗飯,LC 18cm圓鍋就大左少少,如果多d人上黎食飯我地先會用返佢

Cooking 2 cups of rice, the LC 18cm round casserole is a bit too large. We now use it only when people come to our place for dinner
