Unless you’ve seen these directions side by side you might just gloss over the phrase without thinking what it actually means.
One cup rice, cooked (comes out to about 2 2/3 cups of rice)
One cup cooked rice (comes out to 1 cup rice)
Of course now that you see it you can probably distinquish just what it means but if not paying attention it could make a huge difference in your recipe.
One cup cooked rice, simply means after the rice has been cooked measure out a cup. You do this in a dry measure for complete accuracy. However, for the purpose of showing this in a photo I used my liquid measuring cup that’s transparent.
One cup rice, cooked means to measure 1 cup of dry rice, then cook it. This measurement comes out to be 1 2/3 cups more than a cup of cooked rice.
