Cooking Tip!

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.
