Preventing rice and pasta from sticking to a colander while filtering the starch water

July 7, 2009 at 8:14 pm 1 comment

Most often pasta and rice stick to colander while trying to filter the starch water out after cooking rice or pasta. The colander then gets more complicated to clean, especially if pasta or rice is left in it for a while to cool down.  It is possible to avoid this frustration using this easy tip.  Just rinse the colander with hygienic tap water just before you pour the pasta or rice.   This tip with the water layer provides for a non-stick layer and prevents rice or pasta from sticking to the colander.  Be generous with rinsing the colander and do NOT towel dry the colander after rinsing.

    Excellent tip – this is one of those OMG moments for me. I have started cooking rice on an open stove top recently. (2 days back to be precise). I drained the rice in a colander and lost some in the process.

    Thanks again for the timely tip!!!
