Rice is a grain that has become a food staple throughout much of the world. It can be grown in practically any flat environment and eaten in many different forms, but is usually boiled or steamed to a soft consistency.
You can keep rice from becoming sticky by cooking it in water with 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Cooks in India have used this secret for years since lemons are a common ingredient in curries and other traditional dishes. Lemons also give the rice a brilliant white color.
