my teacher told me that good rice is actually flavorful all on it's own.
You dont need to heap on condiments or spices. Just cook it right, and it provides it's own flavor component.
Is this true?
For the life of me, I just cant get my mind wrapped around this.
Blame it on my steady American diet of Uncle Ben's and Quick minute rice which has left me with the impression that all rice was just as bland and tasteless and wsnt complete without adding a whole bunch of add-ins and other stuff to it.
