I am cooking Red Beans and Rice for a Katrina Benefit on Friday night for 150 people. Can any of you hounds tell me a great way to cook alot of long grain white rice at once without having it be mushy. I am condsidering the boiling method, cooking it uncovered in a huge pot of h20 and then draining after it is tender. Or does anyone know another method and I'm sure I'd decrease the amount of water per cup of rice. How much? Has anyone ever made a large quantity of baked rice? Gracias Amigos.
