How to make homemade Soupy Rice?
Although making soupy rice is easy, we need to keep in mind some little tricks so that way it turns out perfectly.
The first and most important secret is to never use water, and in its stead add broth, the type of which will depend on the flavor that you want to give the rice.
In this sense, we recommend that you make a homemade broth because it will penetrate more with the flavor of its ingredients, giving it better quality and exquisiteness to the recipe, which will be different from industrial ones.
Another key trick is to use sauté it when you cook the soupy rice, which will add more potential to its flavor, and so we should use correct ingredients.
Aside from that, is the proportion of rice and broth to use, which doesn’t come from any recipe, the adequate amount is to use three times as much liquid for every measurement of rice, in this way we will be guaranteed that it will come out soupy.
The type of rice is also important for this recipe, it is recommended to use a rounded grained rice or Bomba rice, since it is a type of rice that can withstand prolonged cooking maintaining 100% of its structure and it absorbs more liquid.
While the soupy rice is cooking it is good to stir it frequently so that way the starch comes out of it, which will guarantee that it will have the creamy texture we are looking for.
Knowing these tricks for soupy rice, we can now move on to the ingredient list and the step-by-step instructions to prepare it.
