How to cook Pasta in a rice cooker?

First, make sure that your rice cooker is working correctly. Then set it in preparing mode. For shaped Pasta, you need water 1/4 inches above the Pasta. At first, take Pasta in the bowl of the cooker.

Then add water, salt, oil, and mix them. Cover with a lid of the pot and wait for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, uncover the cooker, and you will see that it is ready for eating.

You should notice that how much your cooker can contain. If you give more Pasta at a time, you can’t cook well.

Another way is to make Pasta in a rice cooker. In this way, you need to use a rice cooker steamer bowl. Keep water with adding salt in the pot and Pasta in the steamer bowl. Then cover the lid and set the cooking mode.

Some tips about cooking pasta.

  • When you make Pasta in a rice cooker, you can use hot or cold water. Many people say the taste and texture are different in hot and cold water. Coldwater makes it tasty, but hot water makes it more delicious. Even hot water makes it smooth and cold water makes it sticky.

It is not true. Taste and texture do not also depend on water. No matter the water you use, the taste does not change. But cold water takes more time than hot water. If you are in a hurry, you should use warm water naturally.

  • Adding salt is an essential thing for noodles or Pasta. When you boil water, you add salt in the water. Because of adding salt in the water, Pasta gets the salt properly and increases its taste. But if you add later, it can’t mix correctly.
  • Another vital tip is mixing oil. We use oil for cooking pasta noodles in water. We think oil helps to keep Pasta separate and stable. But you must know that you can’t cook delicious pasta sauce if you use oil. For oil, sauce can’t mix decently. So, when you make yummy sauce pasta, you shouldn’t use oil.

In the summer, the rice cooker helps to keep the temperature healthy in your kitchen because it does not heat up. In the cooker, food will not burn. So, it is always safe.
