As someone who is *obsessed* with food, most of my favorite dishes fall under Italian and Japanese cuisine. TBH, I will never get tired of eating pizza, pasta, sashimi, and ramen. But I gotta admit: As a Pinay, nothing beats a good old rice meal—especially when it's your favorite ulam!
Let's be real, though: Cooking rice isn't always easy. It definitely takes time, and you gotta make sure you've got the correct water to rice ratio down pat. If like me, you sometimes share the same struggle, here's one thing you should try: self-heating rice bowls or hot pot meals. Check it out.
Self-heating rice meal: How does it work?
- Combine the rice, viand, and water packet into the small bowl.
- In the big bowl, place the heating pad and pour in room temperature water.
- Grab the small bowl and place it directly above the big bowl. Cover everything with the lid.
- Set the bowl aside and wait for about 15 minutes.
- Once there's steam coming out from the bowl, that's your sign that the meal is already cooked.
- Finish off with some sauce on top, mix everything, and serve. Enjoy!
Self-heating rice meal: Features
With this self-heating rice meal, you can enjoy a bowl of rice with ulam anytime and anywhere. The best part? All you need is room temperature water.
