1 cup of brown cateto rice Filtered water for soaking 3 cups of water for cooking 1 small onion, chopped or 1 tsp grated fresh ginger Olive oil or another oil Salt
Soak the rice for about 8 hours in filtered water. This process helps to neutralize the phytic acid or phytate present in the grain, which is an anti-nutritional factor.
Sauté the onion or the ginger in olive oil.
Add the cooking water.
Drain the rice and add it.
Put in minimal fire (almost off) and cook until the water dry. Before turning off the fire, check is the rice is soft. If not, add more water and continue cooking.
